Hi, if I may further add it would be very helpful if you get a book on R from your library... the introductory chapters should be very much helpful as all of them start on how to simply start R, load your data files, etc etc.... The deepness and power of R is well beyond any other software, but you do have to use your keyboard more than your mouse :). although there are some GUI's available... when i started using R I used R-commander and rattle which helped me get started a bit...
