Adding a new window manager into the MDK login...

Hello people,

How may I add a new window manager in the Mandrake 9 login (the list of window managers)?
For example, I downloaded one called Blanes (I'm not sure about the correct name) and the command line to call it is something like "blnes". How may I do it?

Look into /etc/X11/wmseddion.d directory. There should be files like 01KDE and similar. Choose one of them as an example, copy it as 11Blnes (or use another free number) and change the filename it executes (it should be easy to find out what to change).
