Question How do I add E17 to the the kdm list of available window managers? [solved]

I'm trying to figure out how to add enlightenment to my window manager list in kdm. I have not had any luck. If someone has an idea, please let me know. Thanks!

I think it would if there were an xinitrc.e17 in /etc/X11/xinit

I tried that. It didn't work. I did find out that I could install something called Slacke17. it's package built for slackware that has everything you need to get started with e17. I installed it and checked xwmconfig and it was listed to choose from as my default wm. I then logged out and was able to select enlightenment from teh kdm list and boom I was logged into e17! Woohoo! Whew! I was really starting to miss e. I had used it once before for a few weeks and really liked it. So that's what I'm using right now. Thanks for your help.
