There are two ways to achieve your goal.

1. If your window manager supports session management (I only now icewm 
to do this) you should only start him once you after starting
gnome-session.  The session manager should restart the window manager
the next time you start a session.

2. If your window manager doesn't support session management, you have 
to call the programm 'session-properties' (from the panel it's:
System/Session Manager Properties) and add your window manager to the
list of "Programs to invoke at session startup". That's all.
