Yeah, just take the xterm and netscape commands out of your .xinitrc.
Make sure wmx is the last command in there, and don't put it into the
background.  Use the left mouse button's "New" option to open up an
xterm, and use the middle mouse button to access commands in your menu.
Add commands to your menu by putting links to executables, or shell scripts,
in your $HOME/.wmx directory.

You should still read the documentation that comes with wmx.  See the
README file that comes with the source distribution.
