There are piles of documents that you could (and should) read. I am surprised that you haven't found them in your extensive searches. To set your thoughts free, go here:

http://www.r-project.org/
http://cran.r-project.org/manuals.html ## read the first one, and whatever else you need

Then click on CRAN, and choose a mirror site (nearby), say: http://cran.za.r-project.org/

Then go:
http://cran.za.r-project.org/other-docs.html

and start at the top.

HTH,
Mark.

PS: It might help you in your future enquiries if you used a real name, and if you called R R rather than r (since your keyboard clearly doesn't have a broken R ;).
