You can also take a look at my openbox package at 
http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/openbox/ - the .desktop files 
in the package will start openbox-session (I did not have to do a thing 
for that) and I also added a xinitrc file to be used with xwmconfig if you 
do not use runlevel 4. I use this package successfully as part of my LXDE 
desktop environment, but KDM recognizes the three session types "openbox", 
"openbox-gnome" and "openbox-kde".
