Hi Karin,
I think it's just setting  horizontal to FALSE.
> vioplot(normal,uniform,horizontal=FALSE)
For the axis: 
How about this:
> vioplot(normal, uniform)
> axis(2, pos=1.5)
sometimes the second axis might overlap, so try this one too:
> ylim <- range(normal, uniform)
> par(mfrow=c(1,2), bty='n')
> vioplot(normal, ylim=ylim,names=c('normal'))
> vioplot(uniform, ylim=ylim, names=c('uniform'))

btw: library(vioplot) works for me

Hope this helps
