Unix/Linux or Windows? If Windows, forget the tar.gz file (unless you
are set up to compile source code), you'd probably be better off with
the zip binary. Download it instead and then look at the menus in R-GUI
for the option to install from local zip file - I rarely use Windows
these days so forget which menu it is in now.

If Unix/linux, then:



R CMD INSTALL -l /path/to/lib MSBVAR_0.2.0tar.gz

will do what you want, the -l /path thingy allows you to install to a
specified library.

All this is explained in the R Installation and Administration manual,
that you can find here (html):
