	  I'm looking at the same thing.  A good source for this is to 
'install.packages(c("fBasics", "fCalendar", "fExtremes", "fMultivar", 
"fOptions", "fPotfolio", "fractdiff", "fSeries", "its", "lme4", 
"zoo"))', then 'update.packages()'.  These will install subdirectories 
or folders with the indicated names "fBasics", etc., in "library" with 
your R installation.  For example, in my Windows installation, I have 
"D:\Program files\R\rw2010pat\library", which contains many subfolders 
including ones named "fSeries".  These all contain files "*.R", which 
provide sample code.
