[R] memory problem?

Hi everyone,
   I'm running R1.9.1 on RedHat Linux.  I'm trying to read in a matrix
file with 13956 by 858 dimensions.  I realize this is pretty huge, though
I think the amount of memory I have should be able to handle it.  R reads
the entire file and tells me "Read in 11974247 values".  This is exactly
one less value than what it should have read in (11974248 = 13956*856).
I'm pretty sure this is a memory problem.  Any ideas on how to allocate
more memory/fix this problem?
