How to run 3D desktop effects

I've seen all the web site shots showing the 3D desktop effects, such as the 3D cube, but I can't find any info on how to do actually do this. My FC6 box has a nVIDIA GeForce 6600 card installed, and I have nVIDIA's kmod-nvidia-100.14.11 driver installed. At boot time, I see nVIDIA'S splash screen. I've installed beryl-gnome-0.2.0-1.fc6.i386. Desktop effects are enabled, and I can "wobble" windows. Beryl runs, but has no help option on how to use it!

I'm assuming I'm all set to go, but can someone point me to info on how to actually show the 3D cube?

In the Beryl settings manager, you can see and set key/mouse bindings for various operations. A list to get you started is here. For the cube, press and hold ctrl and alt and drag the desktop.
