Compiz is a Window Manager. The default WM for Ubuntu is Metacity - you have to start Compiz to get Compiz to work...

No you don't need Emerald, and on the Dell version there is no visual effects tab. And psyopper is kinda right, i forgot sorry.
You should be all ready to go, everything should be installed. You just need to start Compiz and make it start up every time Ubuntu starts up.
To do this go to System>Preferences>Sessions. Under the "Startup Programs" tab Add Compiz.
