Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

you know, even though i suggested rox, i cant part with nautilus because it will show my network connections under the 'computer' tab. If rox could do that, i would not need nautilus any more.
unless, someone knows a way..........
Distribution: openSUSE 10.3, Yoper Linux 3.0 , Arch Linux 2007.08
Two others that you may wish to try out:
tuxcmd - Tux Commander. A traditional dual pane "commander" style file manager with nice integrated FTP support, device mounting and many more goodies. Depends only on GTK and hence is very fast.
XNC - X Northern Captain. Very much like a X version of Midnight Commander. Also a very nice FTP capability, and lots of other goodies. Actually slower to load than tuxcmd though, unless you use its preloader. I believe that XNC is dependant only on X itself! It is an oldie, but a goodie.
Both are VERY good though. I used both almost daily, favoring them over xfe and mc at this point.
Of course, my *main* file management is done via Rox, since I use Rox's desktop and as a result, it is just SO convenient.
