Web-based file manager similar to AjaXplorer

I'm looking for a web-based file manager that I can install on my server (It's a Windows server but I'm hoping this would be a cross-platform compatible PHP based product or something. I could also procure a Linux-based server if necessary).

I've looked at AjaXplorer, and while it is nice, it is terribly slow, complicated, cumbersome... I'm looking for a good alternative.

Basically it needs to provide an intuitive and efficient interface to:

- View folders and files
- Upload and download files, especially large files or large quantities of files
- Rename, move, delete, zip/unzip, and generally organize files, preferably with a fairly nice AJAX interface that supports things like highlighting multiple files, drag and drop etc.
- Fast and efficient, and doesn't choke when there are lots of files

Essentially, I'm looking for the kind of functionality users see in Windows Explorer.

GaryC - I appreciate your suggestions but I know how to Google and I've read the various blog posts out there. You have no suggestion for which one of the mentioned file explorers you would suggest? Have you used any of them before?
