[R] dyn.load and/or add new package (Windows 98)

I have been trying to dyn.load a library (rq.obj), which will allow me to run
a quantile regression function, but so far unsuccessfully.
I have tried under windows 98 and R 6.24:

1) dyn.load("d:\\...\\rq.obj")
2) dyn.load("d:\...\rq.obj")
3) 1 and 2 accounting for case sensitivity.
4) dyn.load("d:/.../rq.obj")
5) Place the files in the directory where from I start R and then issue the
   command dyn.load("rq.obj").

One way or the other I always get the following error message:

Error in dyn.load(x) : unable to load shared library "D:\Documents\rq.obj" 

NOTE: According to the FAQ, Add-on Packages can only be added under Unix, or at
least, the information there is only for Unix. Is that so, or is it possible
to do it under Windows 98? I am a newbie, but I believe that I have a package
since it contains several files with extensions .s, .r, .q  and so on.
This quantile regression package was prepared by Prof. Roger Koenker for 
Windows (he uses Unix).

Has this happened to you? Any ideas? I would really appreciate your help.

Thanks a zillion,

Alvaro Novo
