   OK maybe somebody else wants to answer this one:) 

   Obviously I have to start a panel, and a background manager before
Sawfish fires up. How do I do that. Other wm's use a file such as startup
in their directories but I don't see any reference to that in all
the docs I read. And I know less than nothing about Lisp and have no
desire to learn it.
