If you are running Mac OS X Jaguar or later (including Intel Macs) you can run your screensaver as your desktop background!

Just type:

/System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/Resources/
ScreenSaverEngine.app/Contents/MacOS/ScreenSaverEngine -background &

Remember to remove the carriage return after /Resources/!
