Have you tried Qunatian?  http://dirk.eddelbuettel.com/quantian.html

Not only does it have R 2.0.1, but it's got a whole bunch of other programs
already installed, including emacs, TeX, kile, and many more apps.

It's debian and based on clusterKnoppix.

You can run it "live" or install it to hard drive.

Dear List,
I have acquired a new desktop and wanted to put a free OS on it.  I am
trying Fedora Core 1, but not sure what the best Linux OS is for using R

Thank you in advance for your input,
Tom Volscho
