I'm thinking this might not be what you want, although it is one  
plausible guess at what you are asking for. You really should say what  
code and data was being used. This uses a built-n dataset in  
Therneau's survival package:

fit <- coxph(Surv(time, status) ~ age + ph.ecog + strata(inst), lung)
plot( predict(fit,
                 type="lp")) )

(Returns a flat line at 0.17.  Be sure to read predict.coxph carefully.)
