They should install the version that is intended for R-2.10.x releases,
not the one for the development version.
The RHmm version in the 2.10 repository in CRAN has
Built: R 2.10.1; i386-pc-mingw32; 2010-01-03 15:59:39 UTC; windows
hence built with R-2.10.x as required.

It is automated and we are currently building for R-2.9.x, R-2.10.x and
R-devel (the latter in 32-bit and 64-bit), and you have just to say
install.packages() and your R wil grab the right version. I suspect you
downloaded something manually from the wrong repository.
