Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Its not quite what your asking for, but Midnight Commander (aka MC) is very close to what you are asking for, and some people swear by it. Most Distro's have an MC package, so you shouldnt need to do anything to awkward to get it either.
Emelfm is what you're looking for.
Lightweight, really nice. It doesn't have icons, and you can customize columns so it shows the filename, size, but not type -- you have to figure that out from the extension. It has some menus and stuff at the top, you didn't mention if you want them, but you could probably modify it to not have them.
Make a shorcut to "Save profile..." command. Make carefull changes in settings of Konquerror - i.e. hide menu, hide tree, split view into two parts, change views to text mode, get rid of icons you don't need and extensions and plugins you don't need. Save the profile!
It's fast (bla bla DCOP), configurable, although not that lite and much more powerful thaan you wanted :-(

Also, it is twin window. Something I forgot to mention not to be included.
Just found this note at http://www.obsession.se/gentoo
[*] Gentoo the Linux distribution has nothing to do with gentoo the file manager, except the latter runs on the former. I actually used the name first of the two, way back in September 1998. I've been in touch with the Gentoo folks, and we're cool.
