Allegro's normal REPL is in the *inferior-lisp* buffer.

Setup Slime as described in the README file:

    (add-to-list 'load-path "~/hacking/lisp/slime/")  ; your SLIME directory
    (setq inferior-lisp-program "/opt/sbcl/bin/sbcl") ; your Lisp system
    (require 'slime)

Well, you have to choose: either use Allegro's REPL or Slime's REPL.
If you load contribs, be prepared for bugs.
