Dear Francisco,

1. Have a look at ?Devices which (under Windows at least)
   lists a range of devices you can open before and
   between plots.
2. Use par(ask=TRUE) before you start your plots
3. Christophe Declercq provided an excellent example on this
   mailing list, under the topic "curves with shaded areas".
   Search for that in the archives.
