Try installing krusader. Its a very good file manager.

When installed, the root version is installed with a red icon in the
KDE->System menu and the non-root version installed with a blue icon in
the Utilities menu, but you can call the root version from the user


Thanks for the info Graham. It installed ok, but both non-root, and root
versions were in "Utilities". I had to run the non-root version first, as
running the root version first would not bring up the root login window.

Well I've just moved a file from hdb7 (vfat) to my /home/user directory, and
it's gone ok. I'll have to play with this a bit, but it seems to be doing the
job ok.

Many thanks.
