[R] Creating data frame from existing data frame

I'm new to R, using it for an engineering stats class, and the first project
is focused on creating data frames and plotting graphs. So far I have
imported a set of data from a text file and saved it as a variable (using
the read.table() function). One of the columns of the data consists of
years, and I'm supposed to create a data frame that only consists the the
date from one given year (ie. I need to scan the Year column, pick out the
specific year, and include those rows). I'm pretty sure I have to use
data.frame() to do this, but I don't know what arguments would pick out rows
from a particular year (and keep the headers of the columns intact in the
new data frame). Beyond this, I need to plot it and export it to an image
file, which I can do myself.

Can someone please tell me the arguments to data.frame() that would achieve
this (or better yet, point me to a good list of functions and arguments in
addition to this).

Thanks for your help,
