Dear Peng,
There is a MBNI custom CDF package available for this chip.
More information is available here: 
I maintain a page with the most up-to-date annotation libraries for many MBNI Custom CDF files (including the one you are looking for).
This includes packages for the just-released Bioconductor-2.5 version:

Please don't cross post to the lists, especially for a thread that you
started on one list. This is not helpful for archiving and searching the
list for past posts.

As for what you are asking, Marc's e-mail he said you should look at the
webpage, and then if *you don't find the data package that you want,* you
can the AnnotationDbi package (particularly SQLForge) to create such a
package for yourself. You can also share it with others if you wish. There
should be documentation in the package vignette to help you create such a
package (Marc can point you to other documentation if they exist, but I
think that the vignette and man pages should suffice).

There is no possible way that Marc can create every annotation package that
people might like to have. At the end of the day, users such as yourself
will need to take the initiative and do what you need/would like to have for
