how are you switching between the gui's ?? what command are you using ?

also, less resource hog.. try windowmaker, blackbox, xfce.. and there are many others..

blackbox sounds like what i am looking for.. .i searched a few sites.. found this one.. http://blackbox.alug.org/.. is this the main site?? al of their links go to bb.themes.org.. it doesnt make sense unless this site is dead.. does anyone have another to go to..

The top link in my post is the link to the blackbox site, you might want to try fluxbox, it's an improved version of blackbox.
