I'm not using Fedora but Debian... but I'm using Sawfish with Razor-Qt a very good small desktop environment that offers all you need not more (session manager, some widgets, panel, volume manager, user-to-root for mounting volumes with root priviledges...).


Sawfish can be choosen (as in KDE4) from a drop-down box as Razor-Qts WM,

so there's practically nothing to do to get Sawfish up and running.
