I installed XFCE live spin on my old laptop. Here's what I had to do to
get LXDE working:
# yum groupinstall LXDE
# vim /etc/sysconfig/desktop
***
<change content to:>
#PREFERRED=/usr/bin/startxfce4
PREFERRED=/usr/bin/startlxde
DISPLAYMANAGER=XDM"
***

# init 3
# init 5

(you can reboot instead of the last two)

I've changed from default GDM to XDM (login manager) because GDM crashed
in an odd way whenever I selected a user from the list. Odd way being: X
session stays with cursor & background (and nothing else), GDM opens a
new session with login window.. go figure. This was because of LXDE,
though. Not sure if it's LXDE bug or GDM bug from having 2 desktops
installed.
