no composite extension X11R6.9

I'm trying to enable compositing in X6.9 but without much luck.
I have the necessary Extensions section in my xorg.conf file:

Section "Extensions"
 Option "Composite" "enable"
but when I look at my X.0.log (or whatever it's called) file it says:
[WW] Ignoring unrecognised extension COMPOSITE

The result is the same no matter what mix of upper/lower case I use (the file is case insensitive anyway).

Does anyone have any ideas? This is really annoying me. xcompmgr says "No composite extension"

What video card are you using? Do you have the correct drivers installed?
