Change windows manager in SuSE 9.1


I just installed SuSE 9.1 on a rather old PC. On my login screen, there are no options to choose a window manager, KDE is started automatically. I saw in YaST that fvwm is installed. How do I start it?

I am a total newbie.
Thanks.

You have autologin enabled. control center, system administration, login manager, disable autologin.

Then you will have a choice at the login screen, on the bottom right. A screen which you probably haven't seen before.

Then you have no other GUI's installed. Install them. iceWM, blackbox, Gnome, windowmaker, etc.

I'm having the same problem and I have installed window manager. Still the only options are shutdown and xserver. Where's the file to edit?
