windowmaker on fedora core2


I just loaded up fedora2 on my thinkpad and I guess I miss "the good 'ol days" of xinit and startx where I could specify to use windowmaker as the default desktop. *SIGH* I've been out of the computer/systems loop for five years now and just coming back into it. Can anyone point me the the "RTFM" help guide to configuring window maker 8.0 to run under fedora2? I've got it installed well I think but the GDM(?I think that's what that initial login screen is called?) only gives me a choice between kde or gnome. I've changed the .xinitrc file to
exec wmaker &
and I've changed the WPrefs to Disable miniwindows but I'm still coming up with only kde or gnome as my desktop. Any pointing to the right reading material would be most gratefully receieved.
