    I am trying to install R/Bioconductor on a G4 Mac running OS X.  I 
have successfully installed R so that a command window opens, but 
installation of the downloaded Bioconductor package is giving me 
trouble.  After copying/pasting the Bioconductor installation script 
in to the window and typing getBioC(), I get the following error 

"Error in getBioC():  R not currently configured to allow HTTP 
connections, which is required for getBioC to work properly."

   Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
