[R] Can I replace NA by 0 (if yes, how) ?

Hello,
I'm trying to fit some points with a 8-degrees polynom (result of lm is
stored in pfit).
In most of the case, it is ok but for some others, some coefficients are
"NA".
I don't really understand the meaning of these "NA".
And the problem is that I can't perform a derivation
(pderiv<-as.function((deriv(polynomial(pfit$coefficients))))) on pfit due to
the presence of these "NA".
I tried the functions na.omit and na.exclude but "NA" are still there.
I tried to replace manually "NA" by 0. The fit seems ok and then I can
derive the polynom.
But can I do this and, if yes, how can I detect and automatically replace
these "NA" ?
To conclude, I must say that I read some posts on NA but I must confess that
it is still not clear to me (maybe because I'm french and R-newbie ...)
Thanks in advance for your help,
Ptit Bleu.
