I need to set emerald as my default window decorator for it to work. How do i do this

I just installed emerald and compiz-fusion. Compiz-fusion's working great with the desktop and I figured I'll try emerald. I select themes there but it wouldnt effect my windows. So i looked over the documentaion which mentioned i had to enable window decoration in the compiz settings and also set emerald as my window decorator. I did the first part. I dont know how to do the second. Can anyone help me out? Oh and I have gnome on my Ubuntu 7.10
