Gentoo:Fluxbox what now?

I'm in Gnome, i emerged fluxbox, downloaded some cool ass themes, what exactly needs to be done at this point to use fluxbox.

my rc.conf file has

XSESSION="Gnome" right now. Is "fluxbox" a valid XSESSION param?

i would just try it but im doing other stuff right now and cant jus quit my X session.

Hi...I assume that you have installed fluxbox and you want to know how to launch it.....I am sorry if this is not the case..

If you have installed fluxbox correctly, click on the 'SESSION' link at the bottom of the graphical login screen. You will notice fluxbox as an option. Select it, and then log in as you would normally do. You will then be taken to the fluxbox desktop.
