	With S you probably mean S-PLUS, right? Given that is the case, it
depends on the version of S-PLUS you are using. I had no problems to "dump"
a list and then load it into R as long as I was using S-PLUS 2000. When I
switched to S-PLUS 6, I suddenly could not do that anymore. 
	It was possible again to do it when I used the same specification of
dump by setting the argument oldStyle=T
This indicates that (excerpt from ?dump) "
	logical flag; should the file be written in a form that can be read
by earlier versions of S-PLUS? If F, then the file will not be readable by
versions of S-PLUS earlier than 5.0 (Unix) or 6.0 (Windows). 

	Hope this gets you going.
	By the way, this has been discussed before on this list. Please
check (could be googled by using the keywords:
	R-project S-PLUS dump; it is actually the first hit):
