Thanks to David and Jorge - both of your helpful suggestions got me to the desired endpoint. In case anyone else has this question: I boxplotted my y variable data, but did the "cut" operation on the x variable in order to conserve the order of the y data. I see another suggestion coming in from another user that basically says this.
So, my working line of code was:
boxplot(count$RPKM ~ cut(count$C_count, breaks=4)
Much appreciation to everyone who responded...thanks for helping with a naïve question without making me feel stupid.
This discussion board is very, very good.

In that context (having defined a cut-variable with single-integer break argument), would have thought this should work:
boxplot(count$RPKM ~ cutRPKM)
