The original build was missing the contents of bin/i386, which is where 
32 bit binaries are stored now.  A new build has been done, and it will 
eventually make it to CRAN and the mirrors.

Check the date on the bottom of the bin/windows/base page on CRAN: 
2010-10-15 is bad, 2010-10-16 is good (as far as I know).
