Thanks so much!  arima() seems to mostly fit the bill.  I have data 
from multiple sites to use, as well.  e.g.

Time		y1 	x1	y2	x2
1		4	6	7	10
2		5	10	5	20
3		10	1	7	15

I would like to use all of the sites in creating a model - I realize 
that the structure of the model would now be along the lines of:


Where c is the site effect - I know this can get all wrapped up in the 
intercept, but, how does one pass this data to arima() to make it work? 
  I know that arima() takes a vector of y values - can it take a matrix 
of y values and a corresponding matrix of x values, or is there some 
other function that does this?
