Sorry if I wasn't explicit enough. You need to get the MASS library
from CRAN (or wherever you obtained R from), install it (you can do this
using R INSTALL or the rwinst executable, depending on which platform
you're using), and then load it in using the commands I suggested. You
won't then actually have a "michelson.dat" data file (although you could
create one), but you will have access to that data set from within R --
which I presume is good enough.
In case you still can't find it, I've created the appropriate data file
and sent it to you separately (didn't want to clutter up the list).

Can't help you with that, but I believe that you've received all the
mail that got sent to the list on this subject.
