I seem to have installed R-1.7 on RH 9, using the following
suggestions.  It may take a while to learn if they caused any
problems.  But basic things certainly work.

ln -s /usr/lib/libtcl8.3.so /usr/lib/libtcl.so.0
and I also did (as suggested)
ln -s /usr/lib/libtk8.3.so /usr/lib/libtk.so.0

But the RPM still won't install because these are not registered
in the RPM database.  So I just did
rpm -Uvh -nodeps R-1.7.0-1.i386.rpm

As the README says, you do need to have blas installed, and it is
indeed on the installation disks (and in the RedHat mirror sites).

It wasn't.
