[R] R for Win 3.1(1)?

  I've been happily using R on SunOS/Solaris for a while, but am now
trying to develop some course work on Windows.  I know the real action is
on Win32, but I have access to a laptop which runs 3.1 and I thought it
might be useful to develop on the lowest common denominator anyway.

  I downloaded "tmp.zip" (dated 03 September 1998) from
/R/CRAN/bin/windows/windows, which unzipped to Rjune.exe, which when run
under my setup said it couldn't run in DOS mode and refused to do anything
else. Should I try "oldtmp.zip" instead, or back up farther?  I'd like to
avoid old bugs, if possible ... 

  Any suggestions (particularly from anyone who has a working 3.1 setup)
would be much appreciated.  I'm not eager to compile from scratch, but I
could try it if anyone thinks that would help (Borland C).
