[R] New user, requesting help with MAC installation of R

Yesterday I downloaded R and got it up and running on my PC without a hitch, not so when I tried to do the same on my Mac powerbook, using Mac OSX: version 10.4.11.. I have virtually no experience, so I can't tell what exactly went wrong.

At first it appeared that the software loaded correctly, it seemed like I was able to install R , and I even successfully unpacked the package 'scatterplot3d' and was able to run some rudimentary commands.

However, I did not get a graphics window when I tried to follow the same sequence of commands (following a tutorial) that worked on my PC-- basically everything worked except for the actual plot command:

> plot(x,y)

I did this in the command mode in a terminal window, but no graphics window came up.

Can you please advise? THANKS IN ADVANCE!
