[R] boxplots instead of a scatterplot

Dear R list,

I am a newbie to R and programming itself, so my question may be easy to 
answer for you.
I wanted to create a scatterplot and i used the following code:

par(mar=c(10, 4.1,4.1,2.1))
plot(q$location,q$points, , las=2, cex.axis=0.5,xlab="", ylab="" )

#location are character strings, there are about 70 locations
#points are numeric, there are more than 4 points for every location

my problem is that this code does not create a simple scatterplot with 
location on the x axis and points on the y axis. Instead of this i get 
"vertical boxplots" for every location.

Thanks for any hint,

Michael Graber
