IceWM is really good, and the lightest of all (Ice, Flux, BB, WM).

I use IceWM. It's very clean and simple and if you ever get bored like when your compiling a program, it has a little meter on the task bar in the right hand corner that graphs the Cpu and Memory usage. I've tried XFCE and Fluxbox and prefer IceWM. Get it here

I'll have to go with iceWM too, simple to the point yet pretty darn robust. Haven't tried fluxbox yet though, guess I'll have to install it tomorrow and see if it changes my mind over iceWM.

Openbox, easy configuration trough XML documents .. When you've configured your keybindings (for example i have CTRL+ALT+LEFT/RIGHT to shift workspace and CTRL+SHIFT+LEFT/RIGHT to move a program to another workspace) .. It's really nice and lightweight, and if you don't like that you don't have a panel with your applications you can install gnome-panel or pypanel ..
