Carl, have a look Carter Butts article on doing SNA with the R sna package:
Butts CT (2008). Social Network Analysis with sna. Journal of Statistical Software, 24(6). http://www.jstatsoft.org/v24/i06/.
The package itself comes with the larger tool kit statnet (http://csde.washington.edu/statnet/).

I am certain that R is a very worthwhile language to learn - and I intend to! - but I'm sort of stuck on simple things like how to load/import network data into R... (I have tried using M<-read.table('myTabSeparatedData') but it adds row and column headers - plus that the resulting M object doesn't seem to be a Matrix object)
