Just kill the metacity process, run sawfish (Ideally on one command line), 
and when you log out make sure you check the box to save your session.

Ie -- ps auxww | grep metacity
Get the process id, assume it's number 500

kill 500; /usr/bin/sawfish &

They've taken out the ability to change  the window manager from the config 

Fortunately in Fedora 3, the Workspace switcher finally recognizes Sawfish 
viewports again.
