Default Is it possible to enable desktop effects on FC6 using nVidia?

I've got an MCP61 chipset (GeForce 6100) and Ive been trying since FC6 came out to get the Desktop Effects working.
On a fresh install of FC6, what exactly do I have to do to get Enable Desktop Effects to work?

Make sure you have installed one of openGL windows managers. Personally i prefer beryl rather than compiz.

ok i got it working, all i had to do from a fresh install was goto freshrpms.net and get the latest nVidia drivers RPM and install it, worked perfectly. Howeer, when I click "Enable Desktop Effects" all the windows' title bars (including minimise, maximise and close) dissapear. Is this meant to happen? Adn terminal is just a white blank window.

Your window menager just crashes. I''m not familiar with fc6, make sure if it is know release issue, if not report it upstream then.
