Which file controls what is shown under the sessions menu at startup (RehHat9)?

Which file contains the names and the paths of all avaliable window managers and desktops under the session menu at the gdm login on RedHat9.

I think it reads the session files in /etc/gdm or /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions/ . If you're looking to add a new one, just copy and paste the format from any of the files in there and change the necessary lines. It's pretty easy. Just remember to make the new file executable.

It's been a while since I've used redhat, but I think that's right.
