I have used Lubuntu before, and like the low resource use and high speed of flwm. However, when I install the flwm package using apt-get and log out, I do not get an option to use it. Am I missing something, or is this a bug?

It turns out that I want lxde (Lightweight X(11) Desktop Environment), which includes flwm and various other components that make it work smoother with Ubuntu. You can also install the lubuntu-core package, which installs the core Lubuntu desktop (includes flwm and OpenBox) without any extra programs.
