[R] design matrix and coefficients

As a beginner to the limma package I tried to understand how to define a design matrix. I did both experiment examples in the "Limma user's Guide" manual. Afterwards I wanted to do it with my own data. Here I encounter a few problems.

As an example I used four Control samples and 4 treated samples. 1. This is how my target files looks like:

filename            treated time.h  conc.
ctrl_1.cel             no    24    0
ctrl_2.cel             no    24    0
ctrl_3.cel             no    24    0
ctrl_4.cel             no    24    0
treat_100_1.cel     yes    24    100
treat_100_2.cel     yes    24    100

treat_1000_3.cel yes 24 1000
treat_1000_4.cel yes 24 1000

2. I would like to create a design matrix to compare all 4 wt files with all 4 ctrl files. But I also want to see the differences between the two concentrations (100, 1000). I have a problem creating the different coefficients.
How do I choose which coefficient to build?

I would be happy for any help. I didn't find much information about the limma package and the affymetrix (single-channel) chips. If you can help me looking for general information I'll be also grateful.
