Open http://www.pekwm.org/files/pekwm/doc/0.1.12/html/index.html up in a browser, goto section III Configuration and then use your favorite text editor..

reload pekwm every now'n'then Smile

Pretty sure there's an all-on-one-longish-page somewhere if you want a local copy for ref.

Fluxbox has been my main choice for a while now, it's really lightweight and non-demanding for resources just as jwm, but deals with windows better then jwm + much more configurable.
I also use wbar with just several icons for most used apps and nothing more for clean desktop.

Thanks Dejan555!!

I have always used the default config in puppy whIch is rox/openbox/fbpanel. Is fluxbox easy to configure and set up?

Yes, you can still use rox desktop with it, fluxbox has it's own taskbar, but without menu button on it, you have to right click on desktop to bring it but I'm used to it, although there's a hack to put a button.
It looks simple but still has some nice styles and you can even configure pseudo transparency if you like, most other config options are in fluxbox menu, I think one of my fluxbox packages for lupu is in repo, if not here's the link

Here's a screenie
