[R] logistic regression: categorical value, and multinomial

I have two questions:

  1. If I want to do a binomial logit, how to handle the categorical response variable? Data for the response variables are not numerical, but text.
  2. What if I want to do a multinomial logit, still with categorical response variable? The variable has 5 non-numerical response levels, I have to do it with a multinomial logit.

Any input is highly appreciated! Thanks!

Ed
