How to operate multiple windows using multiple pointers in newly configured X server (MPX)

Hello all,

             I am an undergraduate student pursuing my engineering degree.I
have configured X server with new version.I wanted a window manager on my
newly configured X server and so for that I used .xinitrc to start a new
gnome-session as follows:

*exec gnome-session*

So I logged in to new gnome-session successfully.Even I succeeded in
creating a new master and reattach it to a slave using xinput utility.But
still I want to use multiple pointers created on this new X server to
control multiple windows at a time which I failed to do on current
gnome-session.Once I read about 'mpwm'  but didn't get its source code to
configure.So is there any other way or any other window manager to achieve
my requirement? Please suggest in this regard..

Thanking you.
