Do you use a GUI login, if so go down to the Sesseions menu and choose Windowmaker, if you used the rpm it should be in the list of window managers to choose from.

Nevermind, I figured it out. I forgot you have to log out and log back in under the other window manager. Boy do i feel stupid! I was trying to open up WindowMaker under Kde. LOL!
