Cannot make fluxbox default window manager on Mandriva 2008

I've installed fluxbox from the repositories (may have errors, compiled, installed and uninstalled from source before), but I can't make it my default window manager. Everytime I login, Gnome starts up. Help please?

At login screen there should be a session option on the screen, click on that and Fluxbox should be listed. And it will ask you if you want to make this your default windows manager.

there is no list. In the gdmconfig window, where I can select the default window manager for the login screen, there is no option of fluxbox.
