Another method that you can use, but one which will affect ALL users,
is to edit /etc/X11/window-managers. The first one on the list is
the default window-manager, so move fvwm2 to the top of the list. You
will not then need to do anything with .xsession.
Another thing to note, if you do need to change ~/.xsession, is that
.xsession is used by xdm but not by startx (which uses .xinitrc). You
should ensure that ~/.xsession is linked to ~/.xinitrc so that they are
effectively the same file. You also need to check /etc/X11/config, as
Noah pointed out.
