Start of these additional programs increases application startup time, or

The hard way:
Read through /opt/kde3/bin/startkde and figure out which bits you want to start, and which (kdesktop, kicker, kwin) you don't need under fvwm.

Thanks a lot for your information, it helps. I think I'll go for the hard way; I like knowing what runs on my system. :)
