I doubt "the error is matrix(0,n,n) set too elements" is really an error
message from randomForest.
I'd rather get "Error in matrix(0, n, n) : too many elements specified"
which tells us that randomForest cannot deal with such a huge
*data.frame* (rather than a matrix, I guess).
Finally, what do you think how much RAM will be required to store 200
trees grown with default setting on such a huge data.frame? I doubt it
will fit on your whole HDD (without having done any calculations), but
never in your RAM.
