   You haven't given us enough information to help you: please read the posting guide (referenced in every R-help posting).

(1) you need to give _us_ a "concrete example" (not the other way around) that shows us what you tried, how far you got, and what "not run" means (see the posting guide for more information about asking questions on the list).

(2) Can you clarify the question? I don't know what "Plan S(A), S(A*B), S(A)*B" means, at all ...

  Venables and Ripley's book is a terse, but useful, introduction to many topics in R. There are other books listed on the web page ...

  (and by the way, that's "principal" component analysis -- I wish I could ignore it but I can't)

  good luck,
