Firstly please don't post the same message to the list 4 times.  It does 
take a few minutes for a message to pass through the entire list, so if 
you don't get your message from the list within seconds, wait a while and 
it will come through.

Second, there is no "R version of the S-plus software".  R and S-plus are 
two different software: R is open-sourced and free; S-plus is a commercial 
software supported by Insightful.  Both are "dialects" of John Chambers's 
S language.

Thirdly, there is a web site for the book: 
http://www-stat.stanford.edu/~tibs/ElemStatLearn/ where you can download 
all datasets; as well as some "S-plus functions".  Most of the 
functions under "S-plus function" should work under R, for the functions 
that aren't working you can probably modifiy them slightly to get them to
