Question add mozilla to fluxbox

i just recently installed redhat 9.0 and rpm'ed fluxbox using synaptic (fedora).
i have never done anything with fluxbox before but would like to get started learning it.
when i right click on the desktop i see a fluxbox-0.1.14 box with several clickable options. when the mouse pointer moves over net i see browsers as a choice and then with the pointer over browsers i see 2 choices...links and lynx.
if i click on lynx i get a message in a terninal box " can't execvp lynx: no such file or directory"
same thing happens with links.

what i would like to do is open mozilla. am i in the right general location to do this; but need to edit a file somewhere else ?

initially i would like to open mozilla, go to an internet site, click on the link there and have xmms start.

also, i tried to find the answer using google but can't find a complete doc for getting started working with flux; what would someone here recommend for reading ?

help is appreciated.

The Fluxbox man page covers most issues pretty well - man fluxbox
You must, as you guessed, edit a file - in this case your menufile, ~/.fluxbox/menu IIRC.

Debian provides a menu package which automatically creates and updates menus for Gnome, Fluxbox and so on. Since Redhat is very user friendly I assume there is a similar package for your distribution, but I have no clue what it could be called.
