[R] Reading then transposing from file

I'm an R beginner and I'm struggling with what should be a rudimentary task.

My data is along these lines:

ID name1 name2 name3 name4
Class 0 1 0 2
Var1 A B C A
Var2 B C C A
Var3 C A B A


I'm using the following:

foo <- data.frame(t(read.table("file", header=FALSE)))

but of course now it's not using ID, Class, etc. as column names.

As you can imagine, I'd like to be able to use, say, foo$Var2 or foo$ID.

What's the best way to achieve this?
