I would also recommend IceWM... it's a nice window manager... and it runs well... you can also install a plethora of themes and add-ons for it... :::similar to the windows 9x style window managers::::

Try doing `updatedb`
bash:updatedb:command not found. Perform a su, enter password, repeat
step. Same message.

Open xinitrc and add `exec path/to/fluxbox` (no quotes, where
path/to/fluxbox is the output from `which fluxbox`). Save and exit.
All steps just as you told: rpm, inittab, which fluxbox and xinit stuff.

However:

I exit root, logout, login as user, type startx and:

Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/local, removing from list!
Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID, removing from list!

waiting for X server to shut down
