You need to put the name of the file in quotes, i.e.
If the argument is not in quotes then read.table expects the argument to
be an R "object". In this case, the object would be a string containing
the name of the file, so
R> myfile <- "prum.txt"
would work too.

It is the working directory of R (normally the bin directory in the R
home tree, but you can change this by creating a shortcut and changing
the "Start in" field in the properties dialogue).
