I just started using Mandrake Linux 9.2 Download Edition and I am not sure how to
1) Add FVWM to the login manager (every time i try it takes me to IceWM)
2) Run FVWM

If anyone has any answers, please respond....

btw, every time i see a sample Xsession file with the case ) statements, my file looks NOTHING like it......

Which login manager are you using: gdm, xdm or kdm?

you might not have FVWM installed. Use Mandrake control center and do so. A question I have is why you'd want to use FVWM instead of Gnome or KDE. For most newbies, this is a better option, unless you're running it on a pentium 233 or lower that lacks the power to run something newer. If you've heard that it'll make Linux run faster, take that with a grain of salt. For most uses, there is little (if any) advantage speed wise, as most people don't do anything real CPU intensive, aside from gaming.
