I wanted to thank everyone who responded to me. I found that using the '~' and 
having two tabs gave me my MC look. I'm going to  play with creating my own 
linemode and everything else seems to work.

Also, one other thing, is there a way to, for example, tag all *.png files? (in 
MC you do the '+' key and type in '*.png' then all the PNG files are tagged for 
delete, copy, etc.

If anyone can tell me how to do that, I think i'll pretty much be a happy 

Thanks again,
