Try xwc - might have to compile from src rpm, but x-midnight commander is pretty cool.

Try the "xftree" windows manager from the "xfce" package. XFCE is also a full desktop. xftree is a part of it. I can run "xftree" from KDE. It's faster than
Konqueror, has clipboard, copy/cut/paste features and look similar to Windows Explorer.

Krusader seems to be what you want - you'll need kdelibs and qt, but not a full KDE install. It works fine in WindowMaker.

I was wondering what the best file manager is. I'm running Flux so i don't have a built in one. I hace Konqueror which is OK, but i thought there might be better. I tried Nautilius, but it loaded a desktop and I don't want that.

I found gentoo the file manager to be pretty good. The name causes confusion, but it is a tight little 2-pane file manager, very fast, very configurable. There's an emerge for it.

You can try Gentoo:

also ROX and Worker.

I've never tried any of them btw, so I can't tell you which is the best.

The guy is looking for a GUI filemanager which ls is not (it is not a filemanager neither).

Krusader is a QT-based file manager that looks, feels, and acts like the old Midnight Commander in just about every way except for the nice icons. http://krusader.sourceforge.net/images/scrshot01.jpg is a nice screenshot. It apparently works well in KDE3, but I haven't tried it - I still like to pull out a terminal with MC just because it's quick and easy.
