Specifying jobs in Parallel Computing


Hello,

I wonder if I can specify the quantity of the jobs by ParallelTable, or
similar commands.

For example, suppose there is one master + three slave machines connected.
All I can do at this moment is like

a = ParallelTable[ i^2 +3, {i, 1, 3000}]

so that I do not know the load level of each slave machines.

Because I know the CPU speed, I want to divide the total job so that (for
example)
CPU 1 --- i = 1 to 500
CPU 2 --- i = 501 to 2000
CPU 3 --- i = 2001 to 3000

Is this possible by Mathematica's parallel computing kit?
