First, thanks for your messages. Sorry if I wasn't quite clear in my
request. I almost managed to achieve what I needed with simple
Emacs-commands. I defined a function in .emacs that opens buffers and
splits windows and I called that function on Emacs start. I used
commands such as split-window-vertically, find-file, other-window and
so on. It is not perfect because I have problems controlling which
window which buffer to display as one of the things I start is - run
Slime and Slime does some strange things with the windows. I also have
problems controlling windows's sizes. 

My requirements are very simple for now - I need the Emacs frame
devided into several windows with particular sizes. Each window should
display a particular buffer.
