Juan (and probably many others):

If you are unwilling or unable to learn R by doing some minimal work
on your own, then I think you ought to look for other statistical/data
analysis software; or, alternatively, use R from one of several GUI
interfaces that are available: R Commander, http://www.rcommander.com/
, is one that is well documented and well developed. Pestering us on
this list to tell you how to do everything from the R command line is
unfair to us and a foolish strategy for you. IMO only, of course.
