As a fellow bunny, I have to add: if Berwin's 4 steps don't turn
up what you want, or give you so many anwers you don't know what to
do, the next (unoffical) step is to go to Jonathan Baron's R
documentation search engine:


This has the docs, *and* the archives of the r-help discussion list.
Nice!  (thanks, Jonathan!)  Jonathan has announced it on r-help 
before, but it really needs to be crowed about.  Punching 
"existance file"  into the search came up with 27 hits; item
five was a similar discussion group thread in June 2000 that 
gave the same answer (thread: [R] Checking the existence of a file)
