I'm using it, on all my desktop PCs, and two of these have different 
NVidia cards. The lines you describe must indeed be in xorg.conf, 
otherwise you'll have no window decorations.

But to activate Compiz, you just have to go to Preferences>Desktop 
effects in GNOME, and click on "Activate". That's all there is to do.
