You mean "expound"? I wondered if anyone would ask. Here is the script I
use.

#!/bin/bash

exec /usr/bin/xscreensaver &
CHOICE=`Xdialog --stdout --menubox "Window Manager" 0x0 7 Xfce "" \
IceWM "" Blackbox "" KDE2 "" GNOME "" TWM "" VTWM ""`
case $CHOICE in
        "Xfce") exec /usr/bin/xfce ;;
        "IceWM") exec /usr/X11R6/bin/icewm ;;
        "Blackbox") exec /usr/bin/blackbox ;;
        "KDE2") exec /usr/bin/kde2 ;;
        "GNOME") exec /usr/bin/gnome-wm --default-wm
/usr/bin/enlightenment ;;
        "TWM") exec /usr/X11R6/bin/twm ;;
        "VTWM") exec /usr/bin/X11/vtwm ;;
esac
