If you want fvwm to open something at a definite location, specify the
location in ~/.fvwm2rc.  Here's the extract from mine; it opens a
small window next to the pager at the bottom right of my screen in
which is shown what goes on in syslog. Concentrate on the four numbers.

# -geometry [<width>x<height>][{+|-}<x offset>{+|-}<y offset>]
#  that is to say, the four numbers specify size and location: ewxns+EW+NS
+ "I" Exec Eterm -x --bold-font fixed --no-cursor -g 57x5+947+974  --scrollbar 0 --buttonbar 0 -e sudo grc tail -n 16 -f /var/log/syslog &

(All of that should be on one line, of course.)

You may just have to fiddle around to adapt size and location to your
screen, of course.
