Dear List,

I have downloaded the latest version of R onto my machine.  I have followed the instructions on the Bioconductor web page about downloading the getBioC function and subsequently the packages that I require, however I have run into a problem and I was hoping that someone could shed some light on it.

When I opened R and typed:


I recieved the following error message:

Error in file(file, "r") : unable to open connection
In addition: Warning message: 
unable to resolve 'www.bioconductor.org'. 

Does anyone know what is happening here and more importantly, how I can resolve the issue.  Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks to all
