installing multiple window managers

Right now I'm booting my Mandrake 10.1 to init level3 so I get to the prompt instead of directly to a graphical interface. At this point I can type "startx kde" for kde or "startx icewm" for icewm or whatnot. I want to install fluxbox and have the option to type "start fluxbox" or similar. I don't want to automatically boot into any given window manager. Where would I set this option?

If you install fluxbox you'll still have the option to type startx fluxbox. Just keep it runlevel 3 and you're fine
