Hi. I have just dumped windows and installed linux (red hat). In windows you can use windows explorer to "explore" files, create files, copy files, etc. The similar one I have installed is "Konqueror", which is ok, I'd say. does anyone use something different? any suggestions? I also need to map one network location and I haven't figured out how to do it in konqueror. thanks!

To be fair, you may use mozilla (like 'Netscape') as browser. But I don't use it for file-issues - only for webbrowsing. The best tool in my opinion - fast, easy to handle, flexible, extendable, easys to understand - is 'mc' alias 'Midnight Commander' - mentioned above. But for some task you will soon use the command-prompt: your login-shell 'bash' or xterm (xconsole, ...) in X11. It's much more powerfull than 'cmd.exe' and together with command-completition much more easy to use, and fast. You will need some time to learn how to use it, but there is nearly nothing, you can't do with it.
I agree with the Stefan. You should invest your time learning to use the command line. I typically use the bash shell, but you can configure your system to use any of the other shells available. Typically these include ksh and zsh. Command line shells such as these are much more powerful than the DOS command line. If you have experience with DOSKEY (I think that's what it was called) commands, such as up-arrow to visit command history, you will appreciate the Linux/Unix shells. Layne
