For ido these two variable control this behavior.

,----[ C-h v ido-default-buffer-method RET ]
| ido-default-buffer-method is a variable defined in `ido.el'.
| Its value is maybe-frame
| 
| Documentation:
| *How to switch to new buffer when using `ido-switch-buffer'.
| See `ido-default-file-method' for details.

,----[ C-h v ido-default-file-method RET ]
| ido-default-file-method is a variable defined in `ido.el'.
| Its value is maybe-frame
| 
| Documentation:
| *How to visit a new file when using `ido-find-file'.
| Possible values:
| `selected-window' Show new file in selected window
| `other-window'          Show new file in another window (same frame)
| `display'       Display file in another window without selecting to it
| `other-frame'   Show new file in another frame
| `maybe-frame'   If a file is visible in another frame, prompt to ask if you
|                 you want to see the file in the same window of the current
|                 frame or in the other frame
| `raise-frame'     If a file is visible in another frame, raise that
|                 frame; otherwise, visit the file in the same window

If you don't use ido-mode, I have no clue how to do it.

Bye,
Tassilo
