I think you mean the Wharf.  The AfterStep man page is very, very good (do 
read it through) - as long as you know what things are called.  There is, 
though, no documentation that puts names to things directly (the assumption 
is that you also know fvwm and window managers in general).  Here's how to 
find out what things are called in AfterStep 1.6: go to the Modules menu, 
click 'Stop <name>' and watch to see what disappears.  If nothing does, 
click 'Start <samename>' to see what appears.  Work your way down the list.

Anyway, to answer your question, the file that configures the Wharf is 
/usr/local/share/afterstep/wharf.  As with the other configuration files, 
if you create your own copy in ~/GNUstep/Local/AfterStep/ it'll override 
the main one.  Copy the main one to your ~/G/L/A, have a look and then play 
around.  You can always delete it and revert to the default.
