Thanks for your replies. I do not HTML-ize my mail, but free email accounts 
do that and there is not a switch to turn it off.  I apologize in advance.

I installed R from the redhat package provided by Martyn Plummer. It 
installed fine and without problems. I can use R and have installed and used 
other packages within R without any problems whatsoever. I do not think the 
problem is with R or its installation.   I do think there is a problem with 
the installation of rgl_0.64-13.tar.gz on RedHat 9 (linux).  So, if there is 
anybody out there who has installed succesfully rgl_0.64-13.tar.gz on RedHat 
9, I would like to know how.

Thanks so much,
