I believe that R can export all formats that GNUplot can produce, so i don't really see why you want to use GNUplot if you don't know it. If you still want to then read ?write.table, that can export your data into a spreadsheet-like ascii format which can be used from GNUplot easily.

Btw, comparing the graphics capabilities of GNUplot and R, it is something like a three-wheel bicycle and a spaceship. Guess which is which.
