at the time you log into your computer, in the Gui login. There is a menu on that window. Select Gnome as your window manager, and then just login,

That may be the case for Red Hat or Mandrake but i am running slackware, so ive not really explored the x settings, i wanna know how to change them manually without the nice and handy gui screens of red hat.

Any help would be appreciated

run xwmconfig and pick what you want from what is installed-you might want to familiarize yourself up front with your choice so that you can operate once you have booted into the new setup
