I have 1.3.0 version on my linux redhat. I wanted to upgrade to 1.4.1
using compiled rpm (R-base-1.4.1-1.i386.rpm and
R-recommended-1.4.1-1.i386.rpm ) but made a mistake and used "-i"  option
to rpm command instead of upgrade U. It was complaining about already
having files with that name (from the previous version) in /usr/bin/R and
/usr/lib/R so i went ahead and removed those directories. Then I made yet
another very stupid mistake and this time used -U option without much
thinking. So, basically right now it thinks that I have R installed
whereas i don't and /usr/bin/R directories are empty. basically, i am
unable to install R at this point and I am really at loss why it is
thinking that the package is installed.  Any suggestion? I need to remove
references to R but I am really at loss to where they are sitting ...

Thank you for all your help ...
