Christian,

You need to use the plt plot option with new =T. Here's an example:

x <- matrix(rnorm(120),20,6)
# set proportions of window in horizontal
x2cuts <- c(.05,.45,.55,.95)
x3cuts <- c(.05,.28,.38,.61,.71,.95)
# and proportions of window vertically
y.hi <- c(.55,.98)
y.lo <- c(.08,.45)
# plot 1 in upper left
par(plt=c( x2cuts[1:2],y.hi))
plot(x[,1],x[,2])
# plot 2 in upper right
par(plt=c( x2cuts[3:4],y.hi),new=T)
plot(x[,2],x[,3])
# plot 3 lower left
par(plt=c( x3cuts[1:2],y.lo),new=T)
plot(x[,3],x[,4])
# plot 4 lower middle
par(plt=c( x3cuts[3:4],y.lo),new=T)
plot(x[,4],x[,5])
#plot 5 lower right:
par(plt=c( x3cuts[5:6],y.lo),new=T)
plot(x[,5],x[,6])
