That is the standard problem for all RedHat users. Two things needs to be done :

1. Read http://www.afterstep.org/README.rpms
2. Edit script that comes whith RedHat, for chossing Window Manager.
it should be located in /usr/X11R6. As far as I remember it was called wmconfig,
or wmselect
or some other name with wm at the beginning.

Thanks to RedHat for making life so easy and pleasant.

no problem
