file browser recommendation

I'm using Slack 10.2 with fluxbox .... have 128 megs of ram, 350 mhz, 40 gig hdd.

I'm looking for a file browser, because even though I can get around in a command prompt environment, I've grown accustomed to double clicking and so forth.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

I like EmelFM for 2-pane style and XFE for Explorer style.

Try nautilus. (I myself prefer typing "ls" in an xterm -- but that's just showing how old I am )

Midnight Commander is rather nice and fast, I like to use it to transfer files from USB mass storage devices (like my camera and portable music player).

Start it with "mc"
