Johnhenry'shammer Folk Size vs. Dreadnought Size Guitars? (28) Folk Size vs. Deadnought Size Guitars? 20 Jun 06

It my search for buying my first guitar, I've noticed that there are some that are called dreadnoughts or dreadnought size that seem to look like the standard acoustic guitar. However, there is also "folk size" which seems to be more piched in at the sides. Is a folk size guitar better for folk music? And whether it is or isn't, what's the difference between these two sizes in terms of sound?
