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.

If you're looking for a Windows Explorer-like file manager and by 'split-screen' you're focusing on the tree pane as important, you can get the FOX library which includes a demo 'PathFinder' and 'mfm' is another fm based on it but they aren't paricularly good. xfe is another file manager based on the FOX toolkit and the best of them.
There are two file managers called 'simple file manager' or 'sfm' and one of them is a tree, but it probably sucks. Xplore is another, also lame, I think.
Endeavour Mark II is another one and probably the best of the tree fm's. So either xfe or endeavour, probably.
Then there are single, dual, and multi-pane file managers, but those are the only GUI trees I know of. There are several console trees, though.
If you mean IE, yeah, no Linux browser sucks that bad. *g*
No problem Shane. I know what that files like. I worked a solid 8 hours to-day (temp employee through temp service) and the company I am trying to get a job with made us write a 4 hour test after our shift.
Talk about boggle your mind with these math and mech questions.
