  IMO it's best if you have separate program to do that, there is number
of them, I use chbg (in package of same name).

  just stick in in the X startup scripts somewhere, I use xdm so I added
a line (or three) into /etc/X11/xdm/Xstartup:

# erik: chbg - begin
/usr/bin/chbg -scenario /home/erik/.chbgrc &
# erik: chbg - end

  of course, you'd better put the config file (.chbgrc) into some system
wide directory not into some user's dir... probably into some /usr/local
or /opt subdir.

  btw fvwm can do everything (AFAIK) that fvwm95 can and is actively
developed... you _might_ want to check it out.
