There is a command line tool available that will let you launch
programs on a specific workspace.
http://www.sweb.cz/tripie/utils/wmctrl/

So, you could use this to write a script to switch to a given
workspace, then launch an app.

This program seems to have been dropped from fedora since there is:
wmctrl.i386                              1.07-2.fc6             fedora
but nothing newer.  Maybe someone else can respond with info on why
this package was dropped.

I just downloaded the source from the site listed above and it seems
to work fine.
This was on systems running gnome, but the web site says it works with kde.
