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.

Yes, you can use konqueror in kde4 but it seems to be sharing libraries with dolphin as it suffers the same issues.
I'm trying to take pictures from my phone and sort them out, every so often I'll copy the 1000 or so pictures off of my phone and sort them. Konq/dolphin just can't handle more than a few files.
So I hit file/new folder and wait and finally it creates it then it scrolls up to where it is so I have to slowly scroll back down to the group of pictures I found and wanted to separate out.
Well, I'm sorting pictures. Previewing thumbnails on the right pane to see what they look like then creating folders in the left and dragging a few at a time into the proper folder for whatever event I took the picture for. dolphin I create the folder then it falls in its place but its the current selected so I have to scroll back down to where I was then select a few pictures and move them into that folder. Of course each of those steps takes a loooong time. Then I try to select a few and it scrolls up 20 or so selecting multiple so I have to go back and try again. Then the left pane with the folder list moves around all on its own.
I use Xfce and Thunar does ok by me. It's fairly easy to add custom actions.
I use Konquerer to browse SAMBA/SMB shares, as its faster and more stable than Dolphin. I dont have many of those left: the big one is my WNDR3700 WIFI router. The WNDR3700 has USB2.0 for an external drive but only has SAMBA not NFS (one day I'll fix that).
To sort, view, etc., photos, I use Gwenview and sometimes Geegie.
Although, my all time favorite is still Midnight Commander. 'nuff said.
