how do you change themes?

I feel Gnome is a bit inflated and KMD even more and I wanna switch to Window Maker, how do I? Is there a command of such?

download windowmaker rpm's or search for them on your mandy cd's, install it (rpm -ivh <name of the rpm>),
add exec wmaker to ~/.xinitrc and restart X
