[R] Converting factors to bounded random numerical data

I have a data set (a) with three columns (X,Y,Z). The first 2 columns are
numeric. The third (Z) is a factor with three levels A,B,C. I want to turn
each A into a different random number between 1 and 4, each B into a
different random number between 5 and 8, etc.

I tried this:


and it almost worked but changed all the "A's" into the same random number.
I need a different random number for each A. Ideas?
