I just installed R 2.0.0 in a Win XP machine. As old programs do not wor I tried
to re-install them by:

>C:\R\RW2000\bin>Rcmd INSTALL c:\r\r_src\src\autologi
>----------Making package autologi ------------------

then in R

my directory for autologi has the following structure:


I could not find anything relevant in the last version of "Writing R Extensions"
that came with R 2.0.0.

Another question. I did a full "install packages from CRAN" but then comparing
the list of packages downloaded and installed with those in
CRAN/windows/contrib/2.0/ i found packages like moc, multidim, multiv, netCDF,
serialize, yags, xgobi. Can these packages be downloaded and installed or there
is something broken in them?
Thanks for any help and thanks to the R-Team.
