None of the usual GNOME window managers do this. You may be able to use
another window manager, but you'd have to turn off the file manager
drawing the desktop.

Some questions:
Why do you want to wean this person from CDE? Shouldn't people use
whatever is most comfortable?

Also, why does that person see the need to have icons on the desktop.
Isn't a tasklist at least as easy to use?
