I have a Dell with 2 Intel XEON 3.0 procesors and 2GB of ram....
The problem is the DB size.

Have you tried 64 bit machines with larger memory or do you mean that you
can't use R on your current machines?

Also have you tried S-Plus?  Will that work for you? The transition from
that to R would be less than from SAS to R.
