Function lm from the stats package (which comes with R).
See ?lm

Function glm from the stats package.
See ?glm
Chapter 11 of `An Introduction to R' (which comes with R and
is available on CRAN) is devoted to statistical models in R
and has sections on linear models and generalized linear models.
Cf. http://cran.r-project.org/manuals.html

You should (only) make sure these variables are so-called factors
(which is the way R represents categorical variables).
Chapter 4 of `An Introduction to R' is entirely devoted to factors.
HTH,
