The only ways I can think of is to specify two side by side windows at
startup or write a lisp function for doing this.

But what is the problem with having a dired buffer and then opening
another side by side with "C-x 3 d" because even under Norton you have
to tell what other directory you want to have in the other Norton

When you have two dired windows then with

(setq dired-dwim-target t)

dired will do similar things for copying and moving like norton- or
midnight commander (mc) (I'm using Emacs 22 I'm not sure this'll work
with 21 though).
