Norton Commander in linux

Is there any program which makes the linux configuration easier in textual mode?
I mean programs like Norton Commander with which I can edit the files?

Linux has a plethora of text editors--emacs, vi, nano, pico, and many more.

What specific feature or functionality are you looking for?

mc is just a file manager, a program, and will should install in pretty much any *nix. Plus, CentOS is a Linux distribution if i recall right, there shouldn't be any problems.

There are also graphical file managers that look like mc, you can use the wiki (link on the side), under "file manager" should be a list you can look at. They are not exactly the same, mc being a bit more of a "all in one" package if i recall correctly. EmelFM (or one of its derivatives) might be worth a look.
