[R] Subsetting across a frame for plotting

I have a huge frame holding holding model results for a number of locations and time series:

> str(tonedata)
`data.frame': 434 obs. of 339 variables:
$ VALUE : int 101 104 105 106 111 118 119 121 122 123 ...
$ COUNT : int 2443 184 1539 1016 132 1208 1580 654 864 560 ...
$ AREA : num 6.11e+08 4.60e+07 3.85e+08 2.54e+08 3.30e+07 ...
$ D1_1958 : num 470 446 452 457 407 ...
$ D2_1958 : num 480 455 461 467 416 ...
$ D3_1958 : num 493 469 475 480 429 ...
$ D4_1958 : num 542 517 522 526 475 ...
$ D5_1958 : num 585 560 565 568 517 ...

I would like to be able to take all values, except the three first (value, count, area) and be able to plot them. I have managed to make a subset that looks like what I want, by doing tonedata[11,4:339], but that data set is not a vector that can be plottet, it is treated like a set of single values. I tried to use as.vector on the set, bot to no help. I am probably overlooking somehing quite simple, (not to mention not really understanding R's data model..) so help would be appreciated.
