Default Multiple Fur Descriptions

If I have a cube, how can I put a different fur description on each side?

have 6 different planes over the the 6 faces then assign the different fur descriptions, then make those planes hidden so they dont render.

...I went with the separate objects method.

I was having trouble extracting faces from my mesh. I kept getting "Error: Mesh has only one piece. Ignored".

I made it work by selecting Polygon->Tool options->Keep faces together. Then extracting.

If anyone knows why that makes a difference, I'm curious.
