I have no idea what "numbers form the RAD7 machine" look like, but there is a whole section on importing data in the user manual. 'read.table' is a start.

To change directories, use 'setwd'. To start a new R session on Windows, just setup a shortcut to RGUI.exe. Most of this is covered in the documentation that comes with R.
