Thanks a lot for your quick reply.

In the attached pdf you can see the chart I would like to draw with R. I 
could of course make my life easier and use the Power Point chart, but 
importing a ppt chart into Latex would not make me sleep very well, 
besides the fact that all other plots in my document will come from R 
and I don't want this one to look totally different...
