fluxbox ... making menu's

Iam switching from kde to fluxbox because I want to give it a try. I tried it a little and I like its speed on my machine. One thing is that it is not preorganized like kde is. What I'm most concerned with is the menu structure of kde. Is there any easy way to move the menu from kde (e.g. the relevant ones such as "development", "utilities" etc..) and put it into the fluxbox menu.

Just take the "K" menu and directly insert it into flux box under some applet or something similar.

I do mine by hand - just tweak ~/.fluxbox/menu (or is it menus?) with your editor of choice. Found this though: - its a python script to do what you're after. Not tried it myself, but it looks like the business!
