I am looking for recommendations for a good graphical file manager that works well in fluxbox. This file manager needs to be able to explore and browse files, cut, copy, paste, file properties, etc. I do not have kde or gnome installed, so please do not mention any that are associated with them.
You may want to try Xfe. It's light and fast, with enough features.
Another simple one is xfm, which is included on the install CD.
I've also heard of the gentoo file manager (nothing to do with the distro), though I've never used it myself.

I use Rox-Filer http://rox.sourceforge.net/desktop/ROX-Filer as my graphical file-manager in Fluxbox. It is extremely fast and very light. Rox can do all the things you mentioned plus it can automount drives (requires root) and can set default actions as well. I have been using it for quite some time and it just works.You can get a Slackware package of Rox from http://www.linuxpackages.net/
