1. fvwm...doesnt' read .fvwm file??

I want to start using fvwm, so I read the man pages and started to
play with it.  Thing is, the only file that it will read (at startup)is the
default file (sample.fvwmrc).  No I know that I can change ThAT file,
but I'd like to have a .fvwm file in my home dir.  I created one, but
X doesn't want to read it.  I can run olvwm with no problem, but the
.fvwm file gets ignored.
  I commented out the olvwm line in my .xinitrc, and added fvwm &
I know that it looks in my home dir, because I changed the default
file name in the default dir and startx didn't work.  When the fail
came up, it told me that it couldn't find the default file OR the
.fvwm file in my home dir.  I have the permissions set to all read and
write, but I don't have the execute set, since the default file works
and it is not executable.  Anyone have any ideas about this?
