Do you mean a choice of Interfaces (kde, gnome, xfce, etc)? I yelled about
this and Mandrake wrote me a python script to do it, based on the files in
/etc/X11/wmsession.d. I screwed this out of them by copying and pasting the
glowing promises in their 'welcome' email to the crashtesters list, and
getting a particular programmer's back up.

Have you got those?
It's called xtart, and boots any of those, and is now quite popular in the
distribution. I only have the edition with personal abuse of me in it, which
I can forward if you wish.
