want a file browser with multiple tabs


Hello.I use openSUSE 10.3.I have to open several different folders in different window in nautilus file browser(default of GNOME) and then press alt+tab to go to desired window.In firefox there are multiple tabs to open different websites in one window.Is there a similiar file browser which shows tabs for different folders in a single window like there is xplorer2,xyplorer & similiar softwares in windows xp to accomplish this.This wlll allow user to click on relevant tab in window to change current folder

Konqueror does this (the tabs are called bookmarks) but you'd have to load a bunch of kde libraries to run it since you're using gnome.
cheers,

to jaydoc,
pcman works great.But when I open folder as root following error occurs.

gksu or kdesu is not found

I FOUND OUT
graphical frontend comes up automatically when a supported application needs to perform an action requiring root privileges.

Please see my next problem.

Another Question
Is there a way that pcmanfm can remember the list of tabs opened when it was quit so that on next start those tabs remain instead of single default home.
