Unhappy HELP! Fluxbox 0.9x install on Mandrake 10.0 using KDE 3.2

I cannot for the life of me get the fluxbox session to show up so I can use it. I tried a million things that tutorials say and it never works or what they tell me(specific folders) aren't there or can't be done.

PLEASE PLEASE dont direct me to another tutorial, they dont work. I tried ones that say locate the line that says SessionTypes = .... in the kdmrc file and guess what?? that line does not exist. I tried it all, I'm still stuck in KDE on the kdm window manager.

Any help is great.

p.s. I already .fluxbox/ is already created
I already ./configure --enable-kdm
and as root make install

it's installed, but now how can I add the session to the WM and actually USE FLUXBOX??

first of all, a more recent thread has been started about this same problem, you might want to check it out:

when you are at the login screen, what options are there under "session"?
