I showed you how to fix that in the reply which you have not copied.  
Is this further evidence that you have not read the Posting Guide?

The term "subset regression" is not one I recognize but it sounded  
from your description that you wanted what you would get with:

 > out<-lm(Bwt~Sex+Hwt)

lm(formula = Bwt ~ Sex + Hwt)

(Intercept)         SexM        SexTG          Hwt
      1.4716       0.2144       0.6854       0.0965

It is unfortunate that you continue (along with so many users of  
Nabble) to fail to include context.
