Take a look at the file called README.install.
At the end, under "Miscellaneous", you'll find the description to files
in the subdirectory named misc/

The files you are interested in, are 'iwm' and 'xinitrc'.

The first -- iwm -- is a simple wrapper for the actual executable
'interfacewm'. Just copy the file in your user's HOME/bin and make it

The second -- xinitrc -- is a sample xinitrc file that uses above
mentioned script to launch interfacewm. You can use it as an example how
to modify your existing ~/.xinitrc, or use it instead.

Hope that helps,
