There are three file managers included in DSL.
1. dfm. This is the desktop file manager that puts icons on your desktop. It can also be used to nagivate and manage your entire file system.
2. emelfm. This is a twin-paned file manager launched from the filer icon in the tray. There's also a menu item for it in apps-tools (two menu items -- be careful when using it as root).
3. This is often overlooked as a file manager, but DSL comes with adequate command line tools for managing files and filesystems. It will pay off in the long run if you learn the basic commands for copying, moving, removing, mounting, etc., so you're able to manage your system in the absence of other tools.
