Cheers! found it, ill also have a look at some other windowmanagers (fluxbox
looks interesting)

P.S once installed, will it start up by default or will i have to type
something (e.g. startx wmaker)
i would want it not to load on startup but rather only when i type startx
(or something like that)

do i need additional configuration to do that?

apt-cache search windowmaker
shows many packages related to windowmaker. You seem to be searching for
There are some usefull packages wm* for Windowmaker. Maybe You want to
some of them, too. ;)

But Windowsmaker isn't the only light weight WM. Think about Fluxbox,
Blackbox, XFce, IceWM, ... .
