Enable aero in Vista basic not working?

Hi,
It has recently come to my attention after many searches on the Internet, that there is a small registry hack which will enable you to get the aero interface in all versions of Windows Vista below the premium editions (home basic)
Is this true? Before anybody asks I have already looked it up on the Internet and I have also attempted the hack with my windows vista upgrade from dell. And as you made of already guessed I have been unsuccessful even after several attempts and following are all the instructions completely.
So does anybody know if this could all be a lie? Or if it is really true how do I do it in a way which it will be successful.
Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Ben
