have no clue where the screen is that allows selection of the window

when i was running 11.1, i could select from the login screen which windows
manager to use--only if they were properly installed, of course. don't have
11.1 running right now so can't provide a screenshot, but there's a popup
menu on the left side of the screen, a little below the middle, which
defaults to the last used windows manager, but allows you to choose from all
the others available on the system. if that isn't the case in your
installation, are you sure the additional WMs are installed, not just a
couple libraries to support some program?

On my 11.1 install, I've looked everywhere on the login screen and there
are only three things there: a set of buttons for the login enabled
users, a user entry box, and a password entry box. There is NO window
manager selection anywhere, and on my box I have KDE3, KDE4 and gnome
