I need a good plug-in to control the number of posts shown on screen

I really want to set the home page to show like 1-3 posts,

but when I do this in wordpress it happens globally, so my categories may have 10 posts and only 3 show up!

I need something simple that allows me to change the homepage to 3 and ALL categories to 1000 haha.

And I don't want to do EACH category individually. I really want to just set it once and its good forever.

Free plugins please.

    Copy your themes index.php and call it category.php
    Then in index.php add this just before the loop:

    <?php query_posts('showposts=3'); ?>
    This restricts the homepage to 3 posts, and categories will use the category.php file without the restriction.

    Then set the wordpress posts per page however high you want.
