Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

oh, I'm sorry, I don't think I was specific enough. I have only one monitor, it sounds like you're referring to a dual monitor setup. (or are you?) I have four 'virtual' desktops(not exactly sure what to call them.) I use one for my terminals and the rest for other things, but I open everything via the terminal.
So, you do you want to start you app in a different workspace? The only way I've found is to have the app running during log out, with "save session" turned on, and that the app will "automatically" start when you resume the session.
I've never looked at the "save session" file to see how it's done, but it seems possible.
The options for display work whether you have one monitor or many. However, your question applies to virtual desktops (workspaces). There are several ways of accomplishing this, depending on the window manager that you are using. For example, with the Metacity window manager on Fedora Core 3, I use Devils Pie to control the position of application windows, as well as the virtual desktop: http://www.burtonini.com/blog/computers/devilspie
You got me curious, so I looked into ~/.kde, but I couldn't find anything obvious. So I "googled" a bit, and found this

Try for example:
kstart --desktop 1 kwrite

Now, I haven't tried it, but you might want to. Let us know if it works.
