If you have Xorg installed, just create a file in your home directory
called .xinitrc with the contents:

   exec sawfish

If you want, you can add other commands or programs you want to start
before that line; e.g.,

    exec sawfish

With .xinitirc in place, you can then start the X server from the
console with the command xinit.
