file manager with column view wanted

i'm looking for a linux based file manager that will allow me to use a column view like Mac's Finder

does anyone know of one, or possibly how to make nautilus or konqueror do the same thing?

Maybe dolphin can do that, but it's been some time since I tried - the KDE 3 version probably won't though.

As this is "NeXTSTEP heritage", you might want to have a look at a GNUstep app that has column view: gworkspace.

dolphin cannot... or at least it doesn't say that it can. it can split the screen (like norton commander) but not the column view that i want.

this is bugging me. anyone have other ideas?
