Please read the last line to every message to r-help. There is no
code in your post so we have no idea what you did wrong.
> x <- matrix(1:12, 3, 4, dimnames = list(letters[1:3], LETTERS[1:4]))
> x
A B C D
a 1 4 7 10
b 2 5 8 11
c 3 6 9 12
> rownames(x)
[1] "a" "b" "c"
> colnames(x)
[1] "A" "B" "C" "D"
> dimnames(x)
[[1]]
[1] "a" "b" "c"
[[2]]
[1] "A" "B" "C" "D"
