Problem with Fluxbox

i'm currently running TWM on my old 366 mhz laptop and it runs pretty good but oh god its a pain in the ass, to use, and KDE, Gnome and so on are all too slow so i dumped em anyway i found some RPM for Fluxbox, i don't want to compile from source cos this system isn't that powerful and to save space i only installed the bareminium packadge, then i disabled all services that i don't need, its red hat 9 btw and it runs like a snap right now with TWM but its a pain so i would like to upgrade to Fluxbox, anyway the only RPM i could really find was SuSe and a few other, tried to install em and i could never get fluxbox to start up so got any suggrestion on what i should do next and if there is a redhat RPM or if one off the other distro RPM woulud work fine and well so on... i can install from source but i would prefer not cos i would then have to install all the compiler packadge and i don't have much space left on harddrive
