IceWM and loading either Konqueror (which I like) or Nautilus
takes a long time--a couple of seconds on my non-LTSP'd 2.0
Celeron. I downloaded X-WinCommander
http://xwc.sourceforge.net/ and it loads like lightening, but I
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.
