If you want to change the type log off, theres a tab with a arrow click on that and all the types are there, if you want another OS you gotta reboot.

open a terminal window and run this:

killall metacity&sawfish &

this should run sawfish in ur currnet gnome session. Now, before logging out, mark the option 'Save Current setup'. this should automatically start sawfish the next time you login.

u need to do this to each gnome user.
