Installed window maker as root when I first installed slackware8 and now don't think I need a window manager as root. How do I uninstall it?

If you intend to use wmaker then you need it installed globally so users can access it. The users personal settings including root's are in their home folder and can be deleted. Running it will reinstall it to the users home folder again, with default settings.
