Default GUI Chooser?

heya guys, i dont use the gnome display manager (though oddly enough i have a gdm folder with a sessions folder insine, lol), i use the default login manager with fedora (the windowed one with the clock on the side) and would like to know how to edit the options to add more GUI choices in the selector, i want to add fluxbox to the options if possible, instead of just using it as default and logging in at run lvl 3 and doing a startx

thanks guys

I do something like this with gdm and it *might* work without gdm. If nobody has a better idea you could try this:

cd /etc/X11/dm/Sessions
cp default.desktop mynew.desktop

edit mynew.desktop and change the line that says
Name=<blah blah>

to some name you like, and then change the line that says

to something like this:

Where /usr/local/bin/mysession is a script that will start the programs (fluxbox, etc.) you like in your non-default session.
