[R] plotting lda results

Thanks for trying to answer even if my question isn't very clear. Please
allow me to try again with an example:
I want to predict group membership by the three variables below, and then
plot the results in one figure that compares the frequency of scores of both
groups on the LD obtained:
Group<- c(1,1,1,1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2)
var1<- c(2,3,1,2,3,2,3,3,5,6,7,6,8,5,5)
var2<- c(9,9,9,8,7,8,9,3,2,2,1,1,2,3,3)
var3<- c(6,7,6,6,5,6,7,1,2,1,2,3,1,1,2)
data.df <- as.data.frame (cbind(Group, var1, var2, var3)) 
data.lda <- lda(Group~., data=data.df)

As you said, I get two separate figures, one for each group, but I need them
both in one figure.  I tried ldahist by reading the help because it has an
argument sep, but I'm not managing to get it going.

I hope this code is reproducible but I'll certainly read the book suggested
to make my questions easier to answer.

Thanks! Silvia.
