gdm+gnome session, modify $HOME/.gnomerc to something like:

export WINDOW_MANAGER=x-window-manager
exec gnome-session

gdm+x session or xdm, you would modify $HOME/.xsession to read
something like the above.

Either change x-window-manager to the window manager that you would
like to use (fvwm2), or set the system default (called
x-window-manager) via update-alternatives.
