[R] Nonliner Rgression using Neural Nnetworks

I am an old hand at chemistry but a complete beginner at statistics
 including R computations.
My question is whether you can carry out nonlinear
multivariate regression  analysis in  R using neural networks, where the
output variable can range from -Inf to  + Inf., unlike discriminant 
analysis where the output is confined to one  or zero. The library nnet
seems to work only in the latter case but then I could  be wrong. 

Please help me there.

Thanks in advance.
