Changing the Window Manager

Hey guys,

Rite now when I start up my Linux box it just promts me for a user name and pass and once I log on it takes me to this window manager called fvwm. I want to change it to blackbox or icewm how do I do this?

I checked for .xinitrc in my home/user/ folder i can't find it.

i tried typing xdmconfig and that doesn't work too.

At the login screen there is an option button which has a list of login options with all your installed window managers. Choose the one you want then log in.
