Depends on the shell you want to use. For regular shell you could use
something like this:

(defun nf/openshell (&optional dir)
  (interactive "DDirectory to open shell into: ")
  (shell)
  (if dir
      (comint-send-string
       (current-buffer)
       (concat "cd " (shell-quote-wildcard-pattern dir) "

"))))

in any case, it doesn't seem  to be possible to open a shell directly
in any  arbitrary directory other than  default-directory. You always
have to send a "cd something" to move to where you want to be (though
I'd be glad to find out I'm wrong). In any case, that's the same I do
in  SrC (http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/Sunrise_Commander)  and works
quite well for me.
