Unfortunately it seems that RH7.2 will have no PowerTools, but only
the "most important" items from it rolled into the main distribution,
*not* including R (it's not in the beta anyway). On the other hand,
the PowerTools distros have been persistently out of date...

Mandrake 8.2 has R version 1.3.0 as far as I remember.
