[R] indexing a vector starting from 0

Hi All,

I would like to ask if it possible to start indexing a vector from 0:

x = 1:10

y = c(0,0,3,4,5,6,0,8,9,10)

I need to use y as an index to extract the values of x, BUT I cannot  
cull/transform the 0s. What I would like is to start counting the  
elements of x 0:9 rather than 1:10. Would this be at all possible?
