Anyway...welcome to this site.
The latest version of Windowmaker will suffice, windowmaker has recently (within the past 2 years or so) has had a very slow development cycle, however, the project is not dead. In my opinion, Windowmaker has reached the majority of the goals that were set out for it. It's a fast, stable, and easy window manager, and there's really not much more they could do with it to make it any better. So, the latest version has been around for a while, and should work on any system. The easiest method on a Redhat system is to install via. RPM's, Windowmaker should come with Redhat, if not, check for it.

If you don't use a login manager (such as gdm, kdm or xdm) you can set your system to use Windowmaker by adding "exec wmaker" to your ~/.xinitrc file.
