For an "Explorer-like" file manager, try - rox, and couple it with a
lightweight browser such as - dillo.

You'll have to set run actions for file types in rox, but that's a small
annoyance.  Also, for the lightweight window managers, add - menumaker,
which makes your menus for you.  Running is simple - mmaker fluxbox

Are you living in the real world?
