mikshaw, humpty, thank you so much for your help... and thank you a lot Robert for... the solution! Many many thanks, guys. Again:
1. Robert, it was as simple as you said: when you are in fluxbox, just switch to jwm and then schutdown your machine; dsl backups your setting and at boot, it restores them properly, so that you boot straight to jwm; one told once to me "why do you do things simple when you can do them complicated", well, I did it again...;
2. mikshaw: thanks a lot, it was an elegant solution, but my explanation might be not precise enough; I have DSL 2.3 frugal installed on my laptop on the first partition (hda1) and home, opt, mydsl on the second partition (hda5); in this configuration, I don't have to use the backup/restore utility, because dsl automatically backups my files at shutdown and restores them at boot; that was my problem; when shuting down dsl after being in fluxbox, dsl makes the backup automatically, keeping the settings of the fluxbox desktop in the /.desktop file, because your were there at the last time.
3. and thank you too, humpty, it could be also a possibility, but since I have a frugal configuration with home, opt, and mydsl on hda5 (in my boot line), my files will be restored automatically at boot without adding the 'restore=hda5' cheat code.
As you suggested, mikshaw, I have learned a lot about managing the backup.tar.gz file in DSL. I hope to do it less complicated in the future.
