xgl KDE 3.5 Slackware 11.0

I am running KDE 3.5 on Slackware 11.0. I am on a mission and I need some help. I want to install and configure xgl with KDE on Slackware. I have seen tons of sites that state that this can be done with compiz and Dropline-Gnome.

How can I get xgl to work with KDE? I have an ATI graphics card in my HP zd8000 laptop that is running Slackware. What I am looking for is a KDE desktop environment that looks and reacts like Kororaa. Please point me in the right direction.

How far dod you get already, does xgl work with X?
xgl is HW acceleration, right?

I am still trying to get my ATI card working properly with Slackware. As of now, DRI is not on and I can't get it turned on. glxgears only gives me ~120fps. Getting the graphics card working right with DRI will be the first step. Does anyone have any input?
