Redhat menu in Window Maker?

Hey all,
I've been messing around with Window Maker on Redhat 8.0 on my new laptop and I really like the interface (FluxBox is good, too, I tend to switch back and forth). However, I don't know how to make a nice little menu with all my gnome/kde programs on it, as FluxBox was able to do on its own...and the Wprefs thing that adds a Redhat menu did nothing for me (and neither did a script I downloaded to do this thing, and Wmakerconf wouldn't do it, either). Anyone know how I can do this??

Cheers for any help!

WindowMaker does not currently support the new menu system being standardised on by KDE and GNOME. Try filing a feature request.
