Can't get Beryl/Emerald theme working

Right I found a great theme on the net, found out I needed somthing called emerald for it so yum install emerald got me going there. Put the theme into it but it dosnt change. I then found out I needed somthing called Beryl which I cant seem to install its not in the packet manager and yum install Beryl or Beryl* dont work. Looked around abit and seems it may now be called Compiz or Compiz Fusion which I have installed but still when I change the theme in emerald the theme dosnt change.

Thanks for any help eddie

Compiz is the replacement for beyrl, and is a window manager in it's own right. It can be used with KDE, GNOME, and XFCE. The Emerald themes are dependant on compiz to work. I would search for the compiz wiki(dont have the address . . . Google is your friend).

Open a terminal and fire off these commands
wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/compiz-fusion.repo
yum install compiz-all fusion-icon-all compiz-fusion-plugins-unsupported compiz-bcop ccsm emerald-themes
Then hit ALT/F2 and type in
There will appear a nice blue icon in the top panel. Right click for options.

Reference for more in depth info.
