Dear All,

I am trying to fiugre out how install packages on the base system. The
"FAQ" tells me that more details can be obtained  by typing
"help(install.packages)", but my R system gives me an error message when
I did that. I also tried "help(PACKAGES)", "help(install.packages())",
but none worked. Anybody can help? I am running R 1.1.1 on WinNT 4.

Thanks a lot.
