edgeR requires a matrix or read counts as input -- rows are features
(likely "genes" for you), columns are the counts of your features
across different samples.

As far as edgeR is concerned, the onus of creating this count matrix
from your aligned reads is on you.

The easyRNASeq package (for one) has ways to summarize read counts
over genes into a form suitable for differential expression analysis.
There are also other ways to do so.

Martin recently posted a link to a ~ 100 page tutorial covering a
large variety of analyses tasks for sequencing data using a variety of
bioconductor packages that will likely be worth your time to read
