installing enlightenment

i have a computer running debian sarge and GNOME as the default window manager. using "apt-get install enlightenment" i got it to install, and had no errors. how do i set it so that i can chose enlightenment as one of the sessions when i start the computer. i dont want it to be the default just on the list so i can learn it for a while before i switch to it.

In /usr/share/xsessions (somewhere) there should be some files that end in .desktop. Use an existing one as a template and modify it to run enlightenmant then save it as enlightenemnt.desktop.

You should now see it in gdm sessions on login.
