I'm having a very hard time understanding the documentation for display-buffer-alist.  emacs24 behaves differently than emacs23.  Here is the behaviour that I am used to and would like to return to.

Emacs 23:
C-x C-f  (find-file)   
the file that I select opens in the current window

Emacs 24:
C-x C-f (find-file)
the file that I select opens in another window

the window that the file will open in, in emacs 24 is unpredictable, making it very difficult to organize a multiple window session.

Could someone please post the setq command to get emacs 24 to behave the way I am used to.

something along the lines of

(setq display-buffer-alist '(??????))

all the other examples that I have seen use functions like setcar, setcdr which don't help me since my display-buffer-alist is nil.
