No I can't. As Rafael noted, the "pm<-" method only allows for the 
replacement of all the pm probes in a given AffyBatch. I'm curious 
though; why do you want to replace pm values rather than filtering, etc 
at the expression value stage? NA values appear to cause problems with 
some of the processing steps for e.g., rma.
