I had similar problems with installing R 1.1.1 on an NT machine. It 
turned out that the virus check program caused the problem. So 
turning off the virus check during installation would probably help. 
If you are not a system administrator and so you cannot turn off the 
virus checker try to install R manually but then DO NOT unpack 
`zero.dll' from the archive `rw1011b1'. Since `zero.dll' is in the 
demo folder, I guess this does not influence the way R works. At 
least it worked for me.
