My xwindow manager has an issue.

My xwindow config loads up that really simple xwindow system, i think it is xde. However, I believe that the install I choose included Window Manager, which for me is a nice alternative to Gnome or KDE because of size limitations. I can't remember where to change it to load Window Manager. Any tips welcomed.
