Dear R users,

Does anyone know if it is possible to use multinom to do a polychotomous
fit using one categorical  and one numeric variable as response. The
doc. for multinom states that for formula , response can be K>2 classes.
Is this 2 and more, or as I have understood it only greater than 2. I
have tried fitting my data, but have only encountered error messages.

On another note, Is it possible to get a set of discriminant scores for
the multinom fit using predict.nnet or some other function like for lda
using predict.lda?
