For data frames the best is probably the View function (note capitol V) which opens the data frame in a spreadsheet like window that you can scroll through.

For more complicated, list or list-like objects, look at TkListView in the TeachingDemos package.

For more general investigation of data objects look at ?page and ?options specifically the "pager" section.
