[R] (Newbie) using par() to regulate viewing area in graphs

I should first apologize for the very basic question, but I ought to
start from somewhere [embarrassed grin].

I am using R-1.0.0 in a Windows 98 machine to plot some graphs. I
tried to apply a "zoom in" in some portions of the graph using say
'par(yaxp=c(0.35,0.40,5))' but nothing happens, no error msg, no
update in the active graphics device. What should be the procedure to
"zoom in" in a graph?

BTW, besides the manuals that come with R ("An introduction to R", "R
Reference Manual", "R Extension Writer's Manual", and the "Data
Analysis and Graphics Using R - An Introduction", by Maindonald), is
there any source of information I should refer to before posting my
(newbie) questions to this list?

Thanks for all the assistance,
