The default file manager in Fedora/GNOME is Nautilus and the command is:
Code:
nautilus /path/to/folder

Normally, you don't need to do this----i.e. just open the file manager by double-clicking on a folder icon--or just open nautilus directly from the menus.

If you want to run nautilus as root (Do this with caution), then use "su" in a terminal and then enter "nautlilus". Even thought the rest of your Desktop is still running under your username, Nautilus will now be running with root privileges.
