What do you mean by this? You have two input variables, who are binary, meaning yes/no (or male/female, high/low, ...) variables?

If your dependent variable is binary, you might want to google for "logistic regression" (this belongs to generalized linear models). The R-function who handles this is glm(), with the parameter family=binomial().
