I am having trouble with an import using read.table.

I just tried to load a 650,000 record database, and got the following:
Error: vector memory exhausted (limit reached ?)
in addition reached total allocated 239MB.  I thought I read something about
limitations with text data input is often acceptable for problems of small
or medium scale.  Maybe 650,000 records doesn't qualify for small or medium
or often.

Is there a means of allowing the reading of such a large data set?
