If you provide enough of the file name then put an asterisk (*) it will fill in the rest for you. For example you want to access gcc-1.9.2 or what ever version I just made that one up. Then you could type. cd gcc* and then it will fill in the -1.9.2. I have Xandros Linux and Windows XP and they both work that way.
For simple drag and drop i too recommend nautilus. Also it's convenient to create login scripts for nautilus, as it can easily connect through terminal command (nautilus sftp://user@server); so for instance in case of dynamic IP, the IP address can be called up as variable.
