To sawfish from metacity?

Since I don't know of a sawfish for dummies list I hope this one isn't too inappropriate for my questions. I used sawfish before gnome dropped it (when it was still sawmill, I think) and liked it, but haven't been able to use it since. I recently decided to make another effort, but so far no joy. I've
been opening a terminal window and issuing the command:
: killall metacity; sleep 2; sawfish &
but it doesn't seem to change anything. If I close that terminal window I lose my panel as well as the close, maximize and minimize buttons on the windows of any apps I open. In fact, I lose the ability to do anything at all and end up having to do a Ctl-Alt-Backspace into a reboot, at which point I'm right back in metacity. I hope I'm not imposing but i wonder if anybody can give me some idea as to how to get rid of metacity (tenacity?) and replace it with sawfish in gnome as my window manager?
