I found that the site below was quite helpful in figuring out the windows
mess.  It is a short movie that takes you through the various options
available.

Hope this helps

command window disappears if I click in the menu or in the results. I need
to click on "window>command" in the menu but, even in this case, I can't
have the menu and the command line available at the same time.

I hesitated to answer this, as it seems many aspects window behavior 
under Stata 9 seem to depend on the *combination* of various windowing 
preference settings and initially arriving at an acceptable combination 
was quite confusing to me also.  That said, here's a stab at a simple 
step that might help:

Try checking the "make windows float" box under the Prefs menu -> 
general preferences -> windowing tab.

This should prevent the main window (with menu) from obscuring the 
command window.
