    Enlightenment runs under gnome. So, boot into gnome and have enlightenment set as your window manager.

    Try reading the PET's. There is a PET on how to add fluxbox to Mandrakes menu (MD is fairly similar to RH)

    Hello,
    For Redhat you need to create a file in the directory
    /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions . the name of the file should be the same as the window manager you would like to use, e.g. the file FVWM for me shows up in the menu and the file looks like this:

    Code:
    [pbharris@bugs /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions]cat FVWM 
    #!/bin/bash
    exec /usr/local/bin/fvwm2
    a listing of the files (and therefore menu choices) i have is here:
    Code:
    [pbharris@bugs /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions]ll
