Thanks Eugenia. Following the instruction, I was able to enable Composite. However, this step:

"In the Section "Module" make sure GLcore, dri, glx and xrender are loaded. ", you don't need to load both GLcore and dri if you already have glx.

The test is succesful on Fedora Core 3.

You forgot to exit X in order to enable Composite. Switch to console mode with Ctrl+Alt+F1, log as root or user with sudo enable, do init 3 then init 5. Don't forget to log out in console mode. Hope it helps
