What should I be careful before installing fvwm on gnome

At the moment I use gnome as desktop. However, I want to give fvwm a try. What should I be careful before I do so? Like what files I should backup or so, and how to restore what it is if I don't like fvwm.

Thanks a lot.

How do you boot? Command line (easy, don't worry) or GUI (makes it difficult as you need to know what login manager you use)?
