Thanks to all and i will take your advice Norberto as i do not really like kde that much anyway. If i wanted window i would just install windowsxp or maybe vista would be more like Kde any how i digress.
I am tiring to set up wdm and added this line to my /etc/ttys
ttyv8 "/usr/X11R6/bin/wdm -nodaemon" xterm on secure
followed the instructions below found on the fulxbox site but it does not quite work
I get the wdm ok beasty is there, very cool backgound i might add, seen it used in a theme somewhere. No matter what i pick for a windows manager i get the stock Freebsd one wmaker i think? u know the one with the terminal and green menu bars very vanilla. An exception to this kde still works and failsafe gives me control of the terminal window bottom right.
Also i removed a bunch of managers out of the wdm-config file as i was not using them like this.
I still get failsafe and wmaker where do us suppose these come from. Kde still works but not enlightenment gnome or flux box

not sure, probably from its config file. Or just set it to custom, and
use ~/.xsession to launch your stuff at will.
Just curious, why use kdm with all it's KDE dependencies, when you can
use xdm, or wdm (what I use).
