    you can change the default runlevel which will then start either gdm or kdm as a login manager, you can pick your xwm from there. Our you can create an .xinitrc file in your home directory with

    #!bin/sh
    exec gnome-session

    create a new text file .xinitrc in your home directory and add those lines to it, that tells x to load gnome when you type in startx

    I guess you could do it the easy way, type xwmconfig at a terminal
