the window manager/desktop enviornment isn't at all related to screen
resolution. you can configure different window managers for each user or
use a display manager such as GDM or KDM which allows the user to choose
which enviornment they wish to use when they login. As for installing packages
not sure, I use the command line tools for that, haven't used a graphical
tool in a while though there are some I'm sure, kpackage was the one I
used a few years ago, but didn't tie into apt-get at the time. there's
a few newer ones, but their names escape me at the moment.

Haven't used smartx-wmaker myself, never heard of it, am an afterstep
user. though windowmaker is quite similar to afterstep on the surface.
