Loading startup applications?

I am wondering how, if possible, I can add items to automatically start once I load my windows manager in Redhat 8. Specifically, I want my terminal to start once my WM loads, and possibly others. I am using the Fluxbox WM.

On another note, how do i make my terminal, xterm, or gnome-term, or konsole, to be completely transparent? I've seen some cool screen shots of that, and I'm wondering how to do it.

in your home directory there is a file .xinitrc (note the dot)

at the end it should say something like
exec fluxbox

before that you can put what you want to start up

if you wanted to have gkrellm start up when X startx:
exec gkrellm&
exec fluxbox
