    Actually, a "Menu" to get to "Session Type" (sorry--I wasn't clear).

    If you look at your X login screen (console number 7) you should see the
    "Username" and "Password" entry window. At the bottom right of this, you
    should see a dropdown available ("Menu").

      Menu -> Session Type -> managers ("Default", "Custom", "FVWM", etc.)

    If you don't see this at all, I'm really stumped. :)
