What do you mean by this? You have two input variables, who are binary, 
meaning yes/no (or male/female, high/low, ...) variables?

If your dependent variable is binary, you might want to google for 
"logistic regression" (this belongs to generalized linear models). The 
R-function who handles this is glm(), with the parameter family=binomial().

Have fun,
