How do you change the window-manager in GNOME2? I'd really like to run

I'm not sure enlightenment will work well in GNOME 2.0. It may not like
the new GNOME 2.0 hooks. However, there is no good way to switch window
managers yet. It's being worked on. I use:
killall sawfish ; metacity&
To switch from sawfish to metacity.
I've never tried Joe's way, but this worked for me:
Fire up gconf-editor and go to /desktop/gnome/applications/window_manager/
and change "default" and "current" to match the path of enlightenment, which
would usually be something like /usr/X11R6/bin/enlightenment .
(Again, sorry for forgetting to forward this to the list, Joe. I have this
phobia of crowding people's inboxes... Almost as if they were gonna send
the mob on me or something...)
