Red Hat 9 and Sawfish

I'm quite new to the wonderful world of linux, so bear with me. I recently updated my Red hat 7.3 to Red Hat 9.0. All seems quite well, but I want to install a new theme for Sawfish, and possibily try another window manager. I have 2 questions:

1- Where in god's name can I find the gui type thing to switch between window managers in Red Hat 9.0. I remember doing it in 7.3, but now everything is at diffenrent places, and I haven"t been able to find it.

2-I've tried to install a new sawfish theme, but I can't seem to be able to acces the "window appearance" gui. When I type the command line for this(sawfish-ui -group=appearance, I believe), I get this:

error: can't connect to socket /tmp/.sawfish-root/localhost.localdomain:0.0
*** Error: can't connect to sawfish on display :0.0

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
