Graphical File Manager

I am a Fluxbox user on Red Hat 9.0, and I was wondering about a decent graphical file manager, somewhat like nautilus or konqueror.

But NOT either of them, unless Nautilus can be used stand-alone without all the gnome crap.

I just need drag & drop support mainly. Cut, paste, and symlink are a major plus too. Maybe even application association, but it would have to be fully configurable.

Some file tasks are a lot easier with a decent GUI, especially organizational tasks.

For a tree-based DnD non-IDE FM (whew) probably something like Endeavour2. Cut/paste, symlink, mime-type file/app association - check. Needs imlib2 or something but that's about it. Probably an rpm for it somewhere. Or check Freshmeat and just hunt around til you see something you like.

ROX-Filer is awesome IMHO. It's fast and there's no bloat I can think of. It also has all the features you were asking for.

Gentoo and File Runner are both good...I don't know if they have drag-drop, though...haven't had much use for that feature lately.

Also you could try xffm. I don't know about the drag and drop though.
