Please forgive if this question has been asked recently in this list. I've
scanned some of the recent archives and the FAQ and haven't found the
answer to my question.

I'm taking a class on Elementary Stats, basic stuff, and I found R while
looking for stats programs that run on Linux. The documentation seems to
be fairly complete on the functions contained within R, but to be honest,
I cannot find documentation on how to get STARTED using R, especially for
someone who's never used a stats software package before. The notes
that are available separately didn't seem to shed any light on how to
get started, like entering in data to run basic graphs like
histograms, ojives and freq polygons. I've also done some searches on
relevant engines and haven't found any Web resources. Can anyone point me
to some beginners' type of documentation so I can RTFM? :)
