openbox on slackware 9.1

Hi I installed the openbox.tgz package from and the installpkg went fine. But when I use xwmconfig, openbox is there and so I select it. Then I logged out of X and logged back in only to see it was still XFce?

I use GDM and still use XFree86.

That's because GDM uses what it thinks is default, which is Xfce. Is there a choice to select openbox in the GDM menu? If not, there's a way to add a new entry to the GDM menu, but I don't know how to do it. Try doing a search on the forums or Google and you'll probably find the answer. Maybe someone else will chime in who knows how to do it.

EDIT: Here's a thread that might help
