Unhappy help with windows manager

the other day i intend to uninstall compiz from my desktop (Fedora 10). so i issued a command which is:
yum remove compiz*

after reboot, i finally realize that i remove all the compiz component and now i dont have windows manager.

the problem i face is:
-no minimize, move & close button
-cant move windows
-no widndows border
-even if i click desktop button, i get message abaout no windows manager (im not so sure what the message is)

can anyone help me installing the windows manager. thanks in advance

yum install [insert the window manager you want here]
Won't that do it? xfce4 or lwm are a couple of window managers. It really depends on what you want. Something lightweight? or something more like kde or gnome? You choose. This is linux.
