For beginners under Windows, running RGui.exe is advisable. I would in addition advise you to set your working directory appropriately (using the menus or setwd) before embarking on significant explorations; avoid using the default save workspace feature (save explicitly if at all); and avoid the use of the "attach" and "detach" functions. Keep a text editor open to build a complete sequence of commands to do your analysis... copy/paste to test each line. A repeatable script means you don't really need to save your workspace at all.
