So Redhat doesn't come with an equivalent as standard - you have to download and install one yourself?

Pity me - I'm a newbie

i've never tried it, but the gentoo file manager (not to be confused with the gentoo distro) also looks pretty good and provides split screen capability.

>edit: okay, i just tried it. nice!
I love Midnight Commander. Use it exclusively. Once you learn the keyboard shortcuts it's fast and extremely capable of working with all types of files. And it works in a non graphical environment.

I see necrophilia is quite wide-spread among LQ members, perhaps we could establish annual Top10 necroposting award, for people reviving the longest-dead thread.

(Try anything once, even necrophilia.)
You can split Dolphin (the KDE file manager, NOT the marine mammal).
