Two points:

a) Please read the manual "An Introduction to R", among many other 
things, it tells you how to close R and how to answer the question 
whether to save the workspace or not - it also tells you what the 
workspace is.

b) Please ask questions related to the Bioconductor project on its own 
mailing list. At the moment, package management of Bioconductor is a bit 
different from R's "native" package management.
