Hello everybody,
	tried to install bioconductor from three different machines (all 64
bits) and different OS (Linux different kernels, Windows XP)  but always
got a message like this one:

> > source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
> > biocLite()

	Think that is something related to the  place because at home (linux ubuntu 8.04, 32 bits) I was able to  install it without problem

	Any idea?
