dummy rootless question...

that's right..but don't touch Xwin...just replace
whatever default window manager there with 'wmaker &'
whatever name is your window manager...i believe 'twm
&' is still the default for the new release...once you
change this...simply type 'startx' in bash...
..or you can simply comment out the 'twm &' line with
a hash sign and have 'wmaker &' like this..
# twm &
wmaker &

another cool but not suggested way if you want to test
out any window manager...is..
'xinit <-/' in bash then type 'wmaker &' in the xterm
window...you can kill off window managers in the xterm
window to try out others with the 'kill' command...but
this is not a practical method but may help speeds
things in testing...

..not too sure what you mean as 'rootless' never tried
that before...

hope this helps..
