I am not sure but I installed it with the instructions to leave the old stable version
of R. I have many packages installed I know it will work. 
My GUI boots with R2.16. Is there a way to switch the GUI back and forth between R2.15.2 
and R2.16? I can start each of them in a command line window, but not the GUI?
