mc, the Midnight Commander is a non-graphical file manager that brings back memories of Norton Commander for DOS. Excellent functionality.

If you want a graphical one I suggest Gentoo the file manager (not the distribution).

FileRunner it's older than dirt but you can do a lot with few resources. Fast and simple. Midnight Commander is good for the CLI and mcedit's easy on newbies.
