adding a window manager

I am running Mandrake 9.0. I would like to add blackbox to it. I downloaded blackbox and I ran the steps to compile and install it. Now I need to be able to add it to the login screen in mandrake. Can anyone help?

it depends. How do you boot into KDE or gnome? When you start linux do you pop up to a graphical selection of what desktop you want or do you get a terminal? Since you said add it to the screen im guessing you boot into a graphical login screen. In that case you probably need to mess with GDM / XDM config files......I did mine in a real un-traditional way, so hopefully someone else will post how to do it.
