If you look on the CRAN sites, http://cran.r-project.org/ may be the
fastest for you, in the bin/linux directory, you will see that there
are precompiled versions of R for the Debian, LinuxPPC, RedHat and
SuSE distributions.  The packages make installation of R a lot easier
if you are using one of those distributions.
