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.

I recently switched from slackware to gentoo, I had from timed to time enjoyed using nautilus when I had a lot fo files to sort through and wanted to reduce the need for typing (and had a desire for a progress indicator) otherwise I usually prefer the terminal to get things done.
Th eproblem is I cannot make the older version of nautilus work with the newer stuff I have installed, it just won't compile :-(. I tried the newest version but did not liek it much at all, limited usability with little customisation room.
I run enlightenment witch is compatible with gnome and kde, does anyone have a sugestion for a small file manager? I am looking for something that lets me use multiple windows with drag and drop and the ability to type in what directory I wan tot be in at the top, it should be able to view directory contents, copy, and move, I need nothing else, no flash, no big features, no ability to view types of files, nothing extra, just a light weight file manager.
