File Managers

I am looking for a nice file manager to use. I am currently using Xftree that comes with XFCE which is very usable, but has no eye candy. Since i am using Enlightenment i heard about E file manager (EFM) but i can't find to download it anywhere, it was removed from all the places for some reason unknown to me...
I dont like the look of Nautilus and konqueror, and they are too big as well.
So does anybody know what happened to EFM or where i can get it, or if there is another nice file browser that you reccomend.
Thanks in advance!

I don't have a clue why, but i like TkDesk for some reason. If you haven't tried it, it's on the extras cd for slack in /pasture.

Those are some nice filers, i especially like ROX but i'll keep xftree for now since im too lazy to recompile libpng to use ROX with Slackware (as it is stated on the ROX homepage because slackware's libpng is missing some options). Does anybody know when Enlightenment 0.17 will be released so i can get my paws on EFM since it comes only with E 0.17 (and i dont want to run E 0.17 CVS).

Yeah, the CVS version is horrible a nightmare to get going. I am still trying though. If anyone has done it, can you maybe post a 'how to' sort? Thanks.
