[R] indexing data.frames

I have a series of data.frames (i1,i2,...,in) all containing the same number
of items, but dissimilar content. I would like to instal them in another
data.frame, say index, so that I can access their items with index[i,j].
No matter how I try to set index up, its subframes cannot be indexed,
because they all have the row number of 1. What am I doing wrong? (I get
the same result with lists, a data.frame of lists, or a list of data.frames)
Alternatively, does R contain an equivalent to the INDIRECT function found
in spreadsheets, so that instead of doing, say, edit(i6), I could get
instead edit(the vector named by the content of i6)?
Thank you in advance for your help
