Yes (and I guess not many people would do). It wasn't clear *what* you  
were asking until this post.

Now, if the above paragraph really summarizes your problem, I think you  
should use the "place" geometry manager, not grid (nor pack).
The Tkinter documentation [1] is rather short but the Tcl docs [2] have  
more info.
