You can use c, cbind, rbind. Example follow :
x <- c(1,2,46) which returns you a vector of length 3 containing the number
1,2, 4
if you have a numerical matrix of say X, Y, Z each of dim 10 by 2
then A <- cbind(X,Y,Z) binds the colums together to give a matrix of 10
by 6
or B <- rbind( X,Y,Z) binds the rows together to give a matrix of 30
by 2
If some of your vectors are non-numerical, then you may have to use the
data.frame option instead.

Hmm, I am not quite sure what you are asking but you best try with a small
manage matrix first.
I think you are trying the change the names of your columns right ? If so
try this
colnames(DS1) <- c( "a", "b", "c")
Note the quotes around a,b, c. Thus you need not to extract each vector by
its own.
Again for dataframes, the naming procedure is slightly different. refer to
?data.frame.
