Fluxbox not listed in xwmconfig


I just upgrade Fluxbox on my Slackware 10.0 system. However, now it does not show up on the menu in xwmconfig. Is there some file I may need to edit to make it show up again? Also, I installed Enlightenment before I started using fluxbox and Enlightenment never showed up on the xwmconfig menu, I always had to edit my .xinitrc file by hand. Is there a way to get both of these window managers to shower up on the xwmconfig menu?

Actually, I just figured it out. I feel kind of stupid posting for help and then figuring it out like 3 minutes later. Anyway, in case anyone else comes along and has the same question here is how I solved it:

create a file in /etc/X11/xinit/ named xinitrc.fluxbox
Then in that file just put the commands you would have in an .xinitrc to launch the window manager. Then it should show up in the xwmconfig menu again.
