Firstly, so that I can search for it in the future, ;-) what is it called when I move the mouse to the hotspot in the top right of the screen and it shrinks all the windows so I can choose which one to work with?

My second (and real) question is; is it possible to move the hotspot to another corner?

Thanks

The hotspot is called Scale.

If you want to customize it, install Beryl. At this point, Beryl is the same thing as Compiz, but 50 lightyears ahead of it. You'll be very pleased with Beryl. I think it's:
yum install berylAfter it's installed, type in:
beryl-managerIn your system tray, a red gem should come up. Right click it and see all of the options. Good luck!

You can also elect to install "HideSeek" which will give you easy access to your Gnome configuration and especially Compiz. Here's a screenshot of it showing it accessing compiz settings and a link to the site where you can d'load an rpm.

you can configure compiz by using the gconf-editor. you may have installed it during install, if not do a yum install gconf-editor
