Now, I guess "data" is a data.frame, not an array as mentioned above. I'd suggest to supply it to the data argument of lm(), don't attach.

"+ i" does not make any sense here.

If you want to coefficients to be printed, you have to print() them. Probably you want to store the results from coef() in some object in order to use the results further on...
