really like the Konqueror look much more.  Plus I haven't 
tested it out for functionality yet.

Have you tried Krusader?  It's very similar to Total Commander / 
Norton Commander, etal.  

" .. is an advanced twin panel (commander style) file manager 
for KDE 3, similar to Midnight or Total Commander (formerly 
Windows Commander), with many extras. It provides all the 
file-management features you could possibly want.

Plus: extensive archive handling, mounted filesystem support, 
FTP, advanced search module, viewer/editor, directory 
synchronisation, file content comparisons, powerful batch 
renaming and much much more.

It supports the following archive formats: tar, zip, bzip2, 
gzip, rar, ace, arj and rpm and can handle other KIOSlaves such 
as smb or fish. It is (almost) completely customizable, very 
user friendly, fast and looks great on your desktop! :-)

It's the first thing I install on a new install.
