    via spaces system preferences, I don't know of a way to have 3 and not 4, or for any to have a specific desktop image.

    it may be possible to run a script, but I can't recall any hacks published so far

    System Preferences - Expose & Spaces - Spaces. Then add/delete columns/rows by using the + and - buttons.

    It is not possible to have different backgrounds for each space unfortunately.

    edit:
    It is easy, 1 row and 3 columns.

    is it posible to run a different virtual machine in each space? Like OSX in one, windows in another, and linux in the last one? I want to get a setup like that when my mbp gets here

    Yes it is possible to do that with parallels and probably VMware, although you will want a chunk of ram to run it.

    I'm not sure how thay handle fullscreen so they may have to be windowed.

    thanks for the info about the workspace and wallpapers! I was just hoping there was a way....cause i got so used to my other laptop running ubuntu....so i figured that the mac would have the same aviallibity of running different wallpapers on each workspace...

    and yes it is possible to run linux in a VM.... i have a parallel in mines running windows server ...since this laptop was just given to me...from work to run my servers.....

    any whoo it is possible to run linux

    sorry OP, I was assuming you meant a triangular pattern.

    Well you can set your wallpaper to change every second so when you switch a desktop, it'll look like you have different wallpaper for each. :D
