Thanks Roland, fortunately I dug up MASS by Venables/Ripley buried under all my econometric and statistic books.

Will be reading it today and order a few of the R books for additional support.

Thanks for your suggestions...

I'd still recommend Venables/Ripley: Modern Applied Statistics with S (or often abbrev. MASS, which is also name of the package which supports this book and is part of any standard distribution of R). Have a look at the table of contents. It is possible via (and I guess also for a series of other books on your list). I think using MASS together with the included manuals (especially "An Introduction to R") is probably the best way to get you started.
