How do I set the number of workspaces without CCSM?

By default Ubuntu 11.10 has 4 desktops. I want to add two more desktops (I want to obtain a 3x2 grid). Is it possible? How to do it? Thank you in advance.

First, you need CompizConfig Settings Manager (ccsm). If you haven't got it already, you can download it from the Software Centre.

Next, go to General Options > Desktop Size, and adjust the Horizontal Virtual Size and Vertical Virtual Size to achieve the grid you want.
