if you installed it, it should overwrite the old files automatically.

If you want to know how to boot into it, as root, edit:

/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

and remove the lines that execute the current window manager, it may be something like this:

startkde
gnome-session
exec fluxbox

and add a line at the bottom that reads:

exec icewm


You can also have different xinitrc files and specifiy at runtime, like:

startx /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.icewm


If you want to know how to add window manger entries to KDM, I dont know, I never use that stuff, its a waste of memory.

I agree with you,
but not the nice and beautifull secretaries in my office.

I know this is simple with Slackware.
Just put xinitrc.the_new_wm in the /etc/X11/xinitrc/,
then it will come out on xwmconfig's menu.

But I could not find it for kdm.
