x file managers?

i'm looking for a nice slick gui file manager to run alongside fluxbox. i've looked on the net and most of them look like crap except for konqueror. but konqueror's so damn huge with all those kde libraries....

anyone know of another decent file manager i should try?

Nautilus, that comes with GNOME, is rather nice. But I don't know what dependencies it has if you are not using GNOME.

Nautilus will screw up fluxbox and you lose the menus until you log in to x again.

My favorite is gmc (gnome midnight commander), followed by gentoo and rox.

Most of the time, I just bring up an x terminal and run Midnight Commander.
