total newb-er question: how to make fc3 use sawfish in a gnome-session

awright, laugh, giggle, shake your head in disgust, but i just want to
know how to make fc3 behave like my trusty rh7.3 desktop.  i don't
tolerate bluecurve/metacity very well.  it's like shoes that don't fit
right. no window snap or viewports. uggh.

i read the doc, faq, hacking, install, news, options, and readme.  also,
i scanned the mailing list for topics related.  none of these really
tell how to supplant bluecurve/metacity.  i tried changing the desktop
thru /.gconf/desktop/gnome/application/window_manager/%gconf.xml.

it didn't work.

in 'red hat linux fedora 3 unleashed' it said to just edit the .xinitrc
and add xsetroot,  gnome-panel, and finally sawfish.

but, i figured, since rh7.3 had a gnome-session with sawfish as the
reigning window manager,there was no reason fedora 3 couldn't have the
same.  i just don't know how to do it.

so, i soliciting suggestions.
