[K12OSN] What selects IceWM packages?

I used yum to install the IceWM packages, but the gdm session menu wasn't 
updated; it still only lists KDE, Gnome, and XFCE.  What file do I modify to add 
IceWM to the Session menu, and what do I call to run IceWM?  (This is on the 
server, not workstations).
