You don't mean a display manager: that's GDM, XDM, etc
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Display_manager>. You mean a window
manager such as FVWM, etc <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Window_manager>.

Display managers, and particularly window managers and desktop
environments <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desktop_environment> are
often confounded. A window manager is a component of a desktop
environment. Decent desktop environments allow you to use the window
manager of your choice.
