FVWM2 is a different window manager, and can't, to the best of my
knowledge, be run from GDM, or from KDM for that matter.
The easy way to try it is to kill gdm, or stop it from starting up at
boot time, and then create a file called '.xinitrc' in your home
directory. It should contain one line 'exec /usr/X11R6/bin/fvwm2'.
Then run "startx" from your home directory.
