loading fluxbox from run level 3?

I have my moonshine set up to boot into run level 3 coz i like it like that for various reasons. I can either login as a user and type 'startx' to go right to kde or login as root and then init 5. that brings me to the fedora login screen and i can choose my session. If i do this it leaves me with a root logged in and im not really comfortable with that. the reason it wont let me start fluxbox after my initial login is because there is no x windows session. I also would like to be able to log in as myself (i.e. not root) from run level 3 and start fluxbox, kde, or xf4ce.

whats the command to start an x windows session with fluxbox and or xf4ce? do I have to pipe it?
