Icewm and Rox

I see all this talk of being able to combine icewm and rox to get icons on an icewm desktop. I can not find any place that explains how this is done. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If I remember correctly, you simply have to run:
rox --pinboard=PIN
or something like that. Look at the help from "rox --help".

never mind I saw how. I didn't have the full rox desktop installed at first just the file manager. then when it asked about what file manager when I ran Rox as my desktop enviorment I chose icewm. This combination is very nice and fast .
