You must read all the coments too.

Basically, you need "the extras respository" (install karan fc extras
respository for centos) and the "tuxfamily.org" xgl repository for fc6.

I attach:
   kbsingh-CentOS-Extras.repo: Karam extras repository for Centos
   xgl.repo: Xgl repository for FC6 modified to force FC6.
   fc-extras.repo: FC6 extras (only enable if karam has not any needed
package)
   xorg.conf.flgrx: My xorg.conf that allow me beryl with xgl.

The steps, basically are:
   1) Take a backup for your xorg.conf
   2) Prepare the repositories (the karan repository is here:
http://centos.karan.org/).
   3) Install xgl.
   4) Install beryl.
