I assume that you mean all chromosomes on one figure.
It does not seem currently possible at the moment (as gdPlot calls
"grid.newpage()" in all cases). I had code to plot karyotypes-sort of
plots somewhere, let me see if I can find it back and send it.

The man page for makeIdeogram() / Ideogram-class state that only human
chromosomes are supported. Having that extended to other organisms would
be a matter of letting one specify cytobands and chromosomes for
arbitray organisms (easier written here than done, there were several
way of specify cytobands/centromere/telomere regions last time I looked)
