Laura,
You can do something like:

>>> from Tkinter import *
>>> r=Tk()
>>> f=Frame(r,width=200,height=100)
>>> f.pack_propagate(0)
>>> f.pack()
>>> e=Entry(f)
>>> e.pack(fill=BOTH,expand=1)

but the entry widget will still hold only one line of text. If you
want multiple lines, you'll need to use the text widget.

Regards,
Matt
