AIGLX+Beryl on my FC6

Finnally, I have AIGLX + Beryl in my Fedora Core 6 (updated from 5). Very owesome, great, very smooth, and more...I am very happy with it. Before this successfull configuration, I have tried many trial and errors configuration of xorg.conf for my Intel 82852/855GM VGA Card. My experiments were based on some forums and blogs that already mentions about how to install and setup AIGLX + Beryl. As already we know, Xorg version 7.1 from Fedora Core 6 had already embedded AIGLX module in that X Windows. We can configure easily our Xorg to enable AIGLX. With AIGLX, we can rendering our X Windows with 3D capabilities. Based on AIGLX module, we can choose one of the 3D Window Managers, like compiz or beryl (as i know).
Here I want to share my xorg.conf, I hope some of you can use this configuration on your xorg machine.
