I don't know how to get it without the whole desktop program, but xfce has a really simple, quick file manager built into it. http://www.xfce.org

I don't use file managers very much, when I do I use emelfm.
My tip would be: head over to www.freshmeat.net
and search for "file manager"

Gentoo BY FAR, IMO. Not the distro, but the filemanager:

Cool

MC is also great, use it on our webserver, cause it dont have X
Its almost like the good old NC (Norton Commander) in the Dos Days..

Dont know where it can be downloaded, but im guessing www.rpmfind.net has it.. =)

Have you tried Midnight Commander?

Hmm, theres evidence and essence that are to be part of E 0.17 when, if ever it comes out. Evidence can be downloaded from sourceforge, but it needs gtk2 while essence can be aquired via E's CVS.
I didt try either of them, but people say they are pretty good.
Also as mentioned before XFCE file manager, called xftree, is good too.

Rox is very nice too, but i found it's way of copying files, moving them or setting new persimissions very bad and unclear, but maybe it's just me.
Just for browsing your picture archive or checking out files ROX is great, but to do any real work with it.....

FileRunner has the easiest install and the most configure options for a X filemanager and Midnight Commander should be a required install for every distro.

never really used it much. my wife uses it on her system. mostly for pictures/thumbnails and easily locating articles ready for publication. she's only been using openbox for about a month, having switched from kde. using rox is faster to her than using the term.
