If I understand correctly what you want the code provided by Jim Holtman works provided you omit the " type = "l" " part. If you convert the matrix to a data frame you can use the ggplot2 package to do this kind of thing very flexibly (see code below)

#Alternative solution using ggplot2#
x2 <- data.frame(x)
x2\$factor <- factor(c(1,1,1,1,2))
library(ggplot2)
qplot(X1,X2, data=x2, colour=factor)
