CentOS-5 ships with Compiz included in the distro, so if you have 
hardware that is compatible, it will work out of the box.

I have built CompizFusion on CentOS-5 but its never really been stable 
with the Xorg version included in the distro, whereas Beryl ( what 
CompizFusion sort of emerged out of ) does work, and it works fine for 
me on a bunch of nvidia / intel / ati cards. The last stable version is 
the one hosted in the kbsingh-extras-testing repo for C5. More details 
on the repo are at http://wiki.centos.org/Repositories
