Graphical file manager for non KDE/Gnome desktop

I just wanna ask if there is a graphical file manager with drag & drop feat. like eg. nautilus or konqueror? I am running fluxbox on debian sarge.
I could probably install etiher one of the above, but they take like 40-50 megs each.. don't know if thats a reasonable size for a file manager..

Gentoo is very good...I used it all the time until I got used to midnight commander (if you didn't specify drag and drop, I'd say go with mc definitely). Only thing is Gentoo tends to crash sometimes for no apparent reason.

I also like the one that comes with the XFCE desktop.

When I'm using a GUI file manager it's usually Gentoo but you might like Endeavour2 if you prefer tree-style managers and don't want to mess with the IDE junk.

The xfce4 file manager is incredibly simple, I'm not very used to it, as I just use Konqueror when I am in xfce4, so I don't have a good review for you. What I understand your question as, the xfce4 file manager is what you are after, although, once again, I have not tested it alot.

I found emelfm that I have grown to love, it has two pane file exploring function with simple two-click action to move/copy/remove files along with other neat functions. It was in the Gentoo portage system but I'm sure you can find it at sourceforge.
