Open Terminal and type this

/System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/Resources/ScreenSaverEngine.app/Contents/MacOS/ScreenSaverEngine -background

It is all one long string until the end, so don't put in any spaces.

There is also a way to make it into an AppleScript that you can execute at login so it is always that way, but I can't remember the code right now
