The default behavior of emacs 21 is to get windows-file-dialogs when you use
the mouse and minibuffer-dialogs when you use the keyboard.
But you can change that with the custom-variable use-dialog-box:

"use-dialog-box's value is t

*Non-nil means mouse commands use dialog boxes to ask questions.
This applies to y-or-n and yes-or-no questions asked by commands
invoked by mouse clicks and mouse menu items.

You can customize this variable."

Unfortunately, use-dialog-box only applies to commands initiated using the mouse.

How do I get gnu emacs to use the dialog box for the keyboard command c-x,c-f ?
