changing desktop manager at login


hi, my system does a graphical boot into gnome (gdm?).
i just installed enlightenment and would like it to be the desktop mgr .
is there a way i can add it to the sessions list at login?
and is it only necessary for me to edit the .xinitrc file?


thanks.

hey all.
i got it running.
i ran switchdesk, which made .Xclients and .Xclients-default for me. and i edited the default file to run enlightenment.
