Take a look at http://www.cd.chalmers.se/~hch/filerunner.html too.
Two panel file manager.
If you live mostly in line mode, it is excelent.
Select files in fr window then simply paste it to xterm.
Needs some patches to run on the recent tcl/tk.
I am still on FC4 with tcl-8.4.9-3.i386.
FC8 ships tcl-8.4.15-5.fc8, so i believe it will work there too.
If you want it, i can send you the patched src.rpm.
