don't use a gui login.
make a file called $HOME/.xinitrc containing these three lines:
man pages on xinit may come in handy here. enlightnement probably
doesn't have docs, but if it does you might want to read them too.
it probably has nifty startup options. redhat's busy trying to help
newbies. if you want to do non-newbie things they're not the place to
go. in fact most distrib's aren't the place to go for that. you'll
notice neither microsoft or apple put up info on how to switch their
gui environments around. most linux distribs offer relatively easy
choice between gui's which is nice (yet limited as you've seen).
this is a good spot to ask though.
