about the icons, dfm lets you put icons on the desktop but needs some modification to make it look good.

light Win type filemanager

try Xfe, it's light and simple, works a bit like windows explorer.
but if you want something special try Rox,

rox rocks.
the only thing you might miss is a tree view

for a while now I've used rox over jwm window manager
they're both very small and very fast

Rox can be installed with zero install

it'll give a new perspective on how to run your desktop
and access applications, while your loosing Windows try
something fresh, don't go backwards

I'm using Debian stable, the versions easily installed
in the Debian system are a bit old but still good.

There are new features you might want to try in the
newer versions of each.

I'm presently downloading an iso from a server across the net
by naming a folder the name of the server, right clicking the
folder, put in the remote user and folder names and password,
presto a secure ssh link, looks like a local folder,
that's a nice part of rox.
