One thing you can try, if your computer allows it, is to have two
monitors. I do this and I put the palettes and help window on one
monitor and my workbooks on another monitor. This is not dependent on
Leopard's "Spaces". You can create a "master" notebook that opens al
your notebooks at once in selected places. Something like this:

docpath =   ToFileName[{"/Volumes", "bob", "Documents",
"Mathematica"}, "Notebooks"];
nb1 = NotebookOpen[ToFileName[docpath, "Notebook1.nb"],
  WindowMargins -> {{10, Automatic}, {Automatic, 0}},
  WindowSize -> {957, 786}]
nb2 = NotebookOpen[ToFileName[docpath, "Notebook2.nb"],
  WindowMargins -> {{-1670, Automatic}, {1, Automatic}},
  WindowSize -> {961, 418}]
nb3 = NotebookOpen[ToFileName[docpath, "Notebook3.nb"],
  WindowMargins -> {{10, Automatic}, {Automatic, 0}},
  WindowSize -> {957, 786}, Visible -> True]
FrontEndTokenExecute[ nb3, "WindowMiniaturize"]
nb4 = NotebookOpen[ToFileName[docpath, "Notebook4.nb"],
  WindowMargins -> {{10, Automatic}, {Automatic, 0}},
  WindowSize -> {957, 786}, Visible -> True]
FrontEndTokenExecute[ nb4, "WindowMiniaturize"]
nb5 = NotebookOpen[ToFileName[docpath, "Notebook5.nb"],
  WindowMargins -> {{10, Automatic}, {Automatic, 0}},
  WindowSize -> {957, 786}, Visible -> True]
FrontEndTokenExecute[ nb5, "WindowMiniaturize"]

The positions on the notebook calls above will of course not likely be what
you want. Put your notebook windows in the position you want and then
use the "Option Inspector" to look at the size and position/margins of
each (look at "WindowSize" and "WindowMargins" variables to see what
they are and then change the numbers in the "master.nb" file for them
to come up in the desired position from then on.
