Actually, I found it right on the Centos wiki:

http://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/Compiz?highlight=(compiz)

what I haven't yet figured out is how to turn it all OFF should
I decide to revert.

Oh, and one other small issue: Now when I grab the edge of a window
and drag to resize it, it no longer gives me the little popup that
shows the size of the window (i.e., an xterm or similar).
I assume it's a function of the window decorator, but have no clue
how one accesses/modifies it.
