R-beta: Add-On Packages in Windows

I am having trouble figuring out how to "install" add-on packages.
The FAQ gives aid for Unix users, but for Windows, I can't
seem to figure out where to put the files.  For example, I downloaded
the bootstrap file from CRAN and I have a directory with some files and
other directories.  I would like to be able to type:
 > library(bootstrap)
and have all the functions loaded much like one would do in S+. 
Any help appreciated.

And also, I get an error message when I try library() to see what is
loaded namely, 
Error in system(call, intern) : "system" is only available on Unix> 

Any work around yet.

Thanks again as always!!
