Assuming you plan to apply spring '09: If you have an instructor this semester who might provide you with a good letter, it's best to ask at the end of this semester (while he/she remembers who you are, but after final grades are out). Even if you stay on top of the issue, and line all your letter writers up well ahead of time, at least one of them will likely drag their feet (taking three months to produce said letter), "forget" they promised, repeatedly, leave town for sabatical or changing jobs, take extended sick leave, die, etc. So have a backup plan. There are illustrative examples of each of these scenarios here on SDN.
