make a file xinitrc.fluxbox in /etc/X11/xinit/
and put
exec fluxbox
in it together with all the common other things. Look through some xinit.WM examples in that folder to get an idea what 'other common things' are. Next time when you run xwmconfig fluxbox should be an option.

I suggest you do something like this:
cp /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.gnome /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.fluxbox
pico /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.fluxbox
and remove the last two entrys only. One will be something about nautilus, and the second one is the actual exec gnome-session
and instead of gnome-session put fluxbox.
What all that stuff before does is prepare your X session and setup keymap and such, and its common for all window managers so i suggest you put it into your fluxbox xinitrc as well.
