I assume you meant the R for Windows FAQ.  If you have a shortcut on
your desktop for R (or somewhere else), then if you right click on the
icon and bring up the Properties window, you will see an entry for
Target with the path to the executable filled in.  After that path (and
outside of the quotes) add the command-line argument as suggested in
RWin FAQ 2.2.  On my PC, for example it would look like this:

"C:\Program Files\R\rw1051\bin\Rgui.exe" --max-mem-size=512M
