Icons in fluxbox?

I just saw somebody use the Feather Linux live USB distribution.

Is it possible to use icons in fluxbox?

yes but you need another app to make the icons appear in the root window.

i personally dont do this but i have used a minamlistic file manager before that did have icons.

iDesk is very good, idesktool isn't necessary though, the site provides good documentation and the files to create are plain text and very self-explainatory
