How to run nautilus or konqueror manager


I'm having Fedora 12 distro. I read there is convenient program to manage file system called Nautilus or Konqueror. But I don't understand how to run at least one of them. It is written I must click "Run" in the main menu but no word where to find this main menu. Can you give me some tips to run any file manager?

Sorry but I found out how to open nautilus but what about Konqueror. Using yum info I got that I have no Konqueror installed. How to install it?

Nautilus is the default file manager of the GNOME desktop environment, Konqueror is the default browser and file manager in KDE. If you have GNOME, just click the "Places" menu, then "Home Folder". The window containing your files and folders is Nautilus.

Well.. if you're running Nautilus now, maybe you don't really need Konqueror, unless you want to give it (and/or the KDE desktop environment) a try. Anyway, there is no package called konqueror: it is provided by kdebase.

No, they're analogous more or less, they do much the same thing. Just nautilus is the one for GNOME.

This is a kinda one-or-the-other situation, so don't worry about it
