.xsession equivalent?


I am running FC 4 and was wanting to customize the look and feel of my desktop but I am used to unix having a .xsession file where I could do all that. However, in my home directory in FC4 I didn't find a .xsession. Should I make one? or does another file do its work? what is that file if so?

.xsession is used by your session manager : xdm,kdm, gdm.

If you create one and in your session manager you click default, it should be used.
