copy /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc to ~/.xinitrc then edit the file to launch enlightenment instead of your current window manager.

You could also get this package/s:
The Enlightenment package there includes a sample xinitrc to launch it, you could download it and take a look (without installing it).

i edited my .xinitrc to have the following line:

exec /usr/local/enlightenment/bin/enlightenment

and it works great!
