GNOME panel, alt-tab and change window manager


Default RH8/gnome setup, and I have a couple of issues on my work box
that I don't have at home, and I'm not sure how to fix them.  The gnome
control center is a lot different now!

1) on the gnome panel, I thought a 'window list' would show all the
windows you have open.  It used to be there by default.  Maybe it still
is, but when I minimize windows, I have no way of unminimizing them,
because there's nothing on the panel to click on to do so, which leads
to my second question:

2) Alt-tab on the desktop does nothing.  At home I thought this worked
by default, so I must've missed something.  The keyboard shortcut
application from the control panel appears to be almost useless.  The
docs appear to have lots of default shortcuts in the screenshot, but
mine has nothing.  Desktop and Window Management are listed in the
'shortcuts' box, but that's it.  And clicking on them does nothing.

3) How do I change window managers nowadays :) - I can't even find the
'sawfish' configuration wizard or anything!
