[R] xyplots with differentiated first data points

I'm trying to plot a series of lines without data point markers, except
for the first data point in each line, which I want to also mark with an
The following code accomplishes this for a single line:
xyplot(yy ~ xx,
panel.xyplot(x, y, col="black",type="l")
panel.xyplot(x, y, col="black",type="p")
However, I am trying to do this for every line for multiple lines in a
panel, with several panels created by a 'by()' function (I do not want a
grid of panels, I want separated panels).
expt1 is a dataframe with seven factor columns, and x,y data coordinates
in columns 8 and 9.
I can appropriately create the grouped lines (but without the single
data markers) with following code:
by(expt1,expt1[,3:4],function(q) xyplot(q[,9] ~ q[,8], groups=q[,2],
data=q, col="black", type="l"))
But I am stuck putting the two goals together because I can't figure out
how to get the group information to be properly passed to the custom
panel function above.
I suspect I may be going about this entirely the wrong way - I've been
using R for all of 4 hours...
