I haven't had time to check it out, but NDN (http://ndn.muxe.com/) now 
has a Linux version.  I've used the DOS/Windows versions for /years/ and 
consider them absolute necessities for any admin.  Think 'Midnight 
Commander on steroids'.  It is strictly a text-mode program, but it can 
easily launch any program you want (four different ways - two types of 
launching, plus edit & view) for a given file type.
