The link worked fine for me just now.

You might also want to look at TkDesk at:

It's what I use. In fact, I like some aspects of it so much that I'm
more-or-less basing my own Gnome/GTK+ file manager on it (with improvements,
of course :-), but mine  is written in CMU Common Lisp (compiles to
stand-alone native code) and will use Lisp in the configuration files rather
than Tcl. Hopefully it'll be available in a month or two (if my "real" job
doesn't make too many demands on my time).
