No, no, no, no and NO! Don't redo your boot, you've done enough scary
things already. If you're running X from the command prompt, just
comment out the standard Ubuntu desktop in ~/.xinitrc and replace with
the command to start ctwm. If your computer boots directly to X, do the
same thing in file ~/.xsession.

If what I suggest *doesn't* work, please post the error message.
