You may also use the "place" method:

from Tkinter import *
root = Tk()
b = Button(root, text='OK')
b.place(x=20, y=30)

This does exactly what you want. But consider understanding, then using the 
"grid" method: it's far more adaptable than "pack" or "place" methods. It 
particularly handles a lot better window resizing.
