Here's a modified version of an example in demo(lattice):

xyplot(Petal.Length ~ Petal.Width, data = iris,
       groups = Species,
       type = c("p", "smooth"), span=.75,
       auto.key =
       list(title = "Iris Data",
            x = .15, y=.85, corner = c(0,1),
            border = TRUE, lines = TRUE))
