Yes, but it is not something done by the kernel as the "normal"
consoles, but by the windowmanager.
I use fvwm2 with a 2x3 (=6 desks) setup, and with alt+arrow, I can
navigate trough them. I also have a pager, which shows all desks (and
which you can use to move to a desk or manipulate the windows).
On http://www.internet-treff.uni-koeln.de/~martin/shot.jpg (rather
big, beware), you can see the pager on the lower right corner.
