auto maximized applications in icewm

I have been using icewm on debian for 6 months solid now and have been looking on and off during that timeframe on how to get applications to start up maximized.
So if anyone can help me out i would really appreciate it!

One thing about Linux i really hate:
I hate the fact that I am still a newbie after 6 months of solid use because of the way linux is set and forget.

If i had been new to windows 6 months ago i am sure i would have done at least 20 full re-installs by now and would be reasonably experienced in a lot of windows stuff.

By comparison every time i set something up under linux, it works forever thereafter and because i dont need to re-use the knowledge my brain promptly forgets it inside of a few weeks!

I came to this realization a few weeks ago when a friend of mine started showing interest in Linux and i couldnt remember how to do anything that i had done.

To counter this intellectual demise ive started collecting some old free hardware(486) and a bunch of distros (redhat, suse, mandrake, a different debian) and plan to do an install fest by re-installing over and over (maybe one per week) until it all becomes cake.

It annoys the * out of me that I know more about Ms products than my prefered linux OS!

Anyways, Debian rox my box, and cheers!
