[clug-talk] How to change the Window Manager?

There doesn't seem to be an rc.conf file on Suse (whereis rc.conf doesn't
return it). I know that with Gentoo, there is, and I remember seeing the
XSESSION variable there.
I took a look at the Xsession script in the /etc/X11/xdm directory, and found
reference to an environment variable called WINDOWMANAGER. Now I just need
to track down where it's defined.
OR, I stop putzing around and just install KDM/KDE, and get some work
The only reason I want to avoid KDE is that the drive only has 4GB, and it's
already close to 1GB with the base system. Installing KDE tacks on a couple
hundred meg, and I still need to install the apps I'll be using on this box
(eclipse, some office apps - probably abiword and gnumeric, web tools, etc.).
So I'm expecting to have very little drive space left when I'm done - and I
still need to be able to work on my own files/apps - some of which take a
fair chunk of space.
Thanks for the responses.
