[R-sig-Geo] GRASS and R

Good afternoon,

I started using R because I appreciated all its possibilities and the 
general idea of Public software. Since I'm also getting involved in 
spatial analysis, I would like to start using GRASS (with R) for the 
same reason (fleixibility, updates, etc.).
I've been using ArcGis for a while now and so have some knowledge on GIS 
software but no one in my lab is using GRASS and so I have to start form 
the beginning. I downloaded some tutorials but for the moment it remains 
quite dark to me, especially with the GRASS 6.3.0 version, for which 
documentation appears to be scarce.

Could someone advise me with a tutorial which would help me with 
handling GRASS (something like "GRASS for the beginners") and connecting 
GRASS to R (using spgrass6).

Best regards
