I'd suggest to use
http://software.opensuse.org/download/X11:/xfce/openSUSE_10.2/. 10.0
RPMs on openSUSE 10.2 are not a really good idea. :)

Setting DEFAULT_WM="startxfce4" in /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager should
help. If not:

$ cp .xinitrc.template .xinitrc

And then replace "exec $WINDOWMANAGER" by "exec startxfce4".


HTH.
