How do I install a theme for compiz ?

I have Ubuntu Feisty and I am using compiz for the first time.
Everything is working, the restricted Nvidia driver works fine, all
the effects are present,but I just don't know how to change the compiz
I would like to install a cgwdtheme for example.
I installed the compiz preferences application and somebody on another forum just said to drag and drop the *cgwdtheme but it doesn't work.
And is it possible to install emerald themes although I don't want to
use beryl ?

well I don't know about compiz fusion
I saw a preview movie and it looked awsome but I have 256MB memory and a gf4 on my system. What are the chances that the whole thing works ?
