[R] "landscaping" the graphics device

I'm just getting started with R, using it mainly for graphics. All of my
graphs need to be laid out in landscape format. I've set the parameter fin
to (11,8.5) as well as fiddling around with any other parameters that looked
promising, but the graphics window always opens as a square, as well as my
plot being square. (By the way, I'm on Windows 2000.) Now, I can physically
drag the window to the appropriate proportions, but this will soon become a
big pain, as I'm trying to automate the graphing of a lot of data. Does
anyone know how to get the graphics window to automatically open in the
dimensions I need? I've looked in the etc/Rdevga, but it seems to only be
for font settings.

Thanks so much,
Katherine Gowan :-)
