I put the following in ~/.xsession and uncomment the WM of my choice. (Note:
I start X manually, with startx.)

##Start a screensaver when X comes up
xset dpms 600 1200 1800
##Choose the browser to start when X comes up
mozilla &
#galeon &
#netscape &
##Choose one of the following WM when X comes up
#exec kde
#exec gnome-session
exec icewm-gnome
#exec blackbox
