Question making programs always on top with fluxbox


I've been using fluxbox as a window manager for Slackware 10 for a couple weeks and like its speed. I haven't figured out how to always make some programs (like gkrellm) always stay on top of the other windows. Any advice?

right click on the top toolbar on the window, layer -> Top
and btw, gkrellm has an option for that built in...
right click on it, Configuration, General, click on the Properties tab, and check off "keep on top of other windows"

I didn't know that about gkrellm-I checked stay on top there. I must have a different ver of Fluxbox (Fluxbox 0.1.14) because there's no layer option or top.

gkrellm has an option to put it on the slit, and the slit can be over all windows.

----------------------------

here is my problem:

fluxbox 0.9.10, and i can't get xmms to be stick (all workspaces), using xprop even, it just work for the session only.
