-- Arrange your data in the "long form". Do it by hand, or use function pack, or
reshape, or package reshape.

(Assuming these are times. If these are categorical variables, better use
strings as column descriptors)

subj time conc    (do not use t or c as variable name, these are 
              "well-known functions" in R) 
A     2    85.83
A     3    75.86
A     4    84.19
B     2    85.91

Use package nlme, function lme. It might be a bit of an overkill for the simple
case, but always worth the effort when things get more complex

summary(lme(c~time, random=~1|subj,data=mydata)
