In the bottom right hand corner where you can switch between desktops, how do you get it to show more than 2?

I'm pretty sure it's possible since I've seen my freind with 4 of them.

Also, while I'm at it.
How do you get the groovy cube thing for when you're switching between desktops?

You need to enable your video drivers and then install ccsm compiz settings manager.

sudo apt-get install ccsm

Load the application at system > prefs > advanced desktop effects and navigate to General Tab > Desktop Size and switch Horizontal Virtual Size to 4

To enable the cube navigate to Desktop Tab and enable Desktop Cube & Rotate Cube plugin.

To get more then 2 virtual desktops you just right click on the switcher at the right bottom and press Preferences and change the Columns to 4 or 16 or whatever number you prefer.

Hope this helps.
