[R] Still need help w/ making a table

Greetings again. I'm still trying to coerce a pile of data into a
frequency table format.  I've managed to do so using perl, so I now have a
tab-delimited file that contains the contingency table I'm trying to use:

Group  var1  var2  ...  varn
  B     42   11          3
  C     44   1           12
  X     12   0           19

I can read the table in using read.table(), but I end up with a data
frame, and when I try to use as.table() it says:
Error in as.table.default(df) : cannot coerce into a table

What I need is a table object upon which I can perform a chi-square

Any help will be very much appreciated!
