Best File Manager & key logger

Hi all!

Once again I come crawling back for advice on what the best app's to use!

I need a decent preferbly lightweight file manager for use on a slow(er) computer. Currently I run Konquerer which is terribly slow... or ROX which is fast but a little clunky and user unfriendly (no offense if anyone likes it). Both of these are run on fluxbox... a window manager I really like

Any suggestions on what I should use... what file manager does everyone else use for that matter!

Also I need to find a decent free key logger... but I'm having trouble anyone know of a good one I could use...

Thanks in advance!!!

lightweight file manager

For a light weight file manager I use gentoo.

Note: Two different pieces of software have the gentoo name. One is a Linux distribution and the other is a Midnight Commander style file manager. I am recommending the file manager.

My current favorite file manager is filerunner. It's very fast and light.

My only complaint is that it can't do passive ftp. Does anybody know how to enable passive ftp for filerunner?

Thanks for the file runner suggestion.... anything to get away from the slow KDE file manager!

Hmmm... Tinkster I know the key logger seems unethical but the computer is in a public area... actually a youth group and we have child protection policey's... plus they'd be warned that key logs are monitered. Porbably a good thing with all the recent babble and fear about internet chat rooms and stuff!

So if anyone does have a good key logger suggestion I'd be grateful!

Big fan of Endeavour myself. It runs quite decently on my PII 233 (yes, I'm serious) running Gentoo. It's got enough eye candy and theme-ability to keep me happy and the interface is simple and windows explorer like.
