A simple shell script would do it--it's 1:30 am here, but quick hack


#!/usr/local//bin/bash
#script to select window manager
echo ""
echo "Please select your Xsession"
echo ""
PS3=3D"Your choice =3D> " ; export PS3
select choice in Gnome Kde Fluxbox
do
case $choice in
Fluxbox)=20
echo "exec fluxbox" >> .xinitrc
startx
break
;;
Kde)
echo "startkde" > .xinitrc
startx
break;;
Gnome)
echo "exec gnome-session" > .xinitrc
startx
break;;
*)
echo ""
echo "Please choose 1, 2 or 3"=20
echo "(or hit Ctrl+C to exit)"
echo ""
esac
done

Even as I look at this, it looks pretty lame, but should get you
started.

HTH and happy new year all

Xander: Hmm, and we thought just because we didn't have any
money or any
place to go, this'd be a lackluster evening.
Willow: I know! We could go to the Bronze, and sneak in our own tea
bags and
ask for hot water.
Xander: Hop off the outlaw train, Will, before you land us all in
jail.
