I don't think that reading about R is the answer at this stage. It appears to me that you need to learn more about regression. There are many good introductory books. If you want to learn the R way at the same time, you could look at the books section on CRAN. Perhaps Peter Dalgaard's Intro to Stats with R or An R Companion to Applied Regression by J. Fox and S. Weisberg, or the books by Verzani or Heiberger/Holland.

After that, you'll find that the R documentation is actually quite good. Most complaints about R's documentation seem to amount to complaints that it doesn't teach statistics. That's a good thing.

About your data: I'm fairly sure that several, if not most, of your predictors should be factors.
