Hi again. I believe that I described the things bad before.

I want to make the analysis with a sample data (train.set) of dataset for
later see if the predictions adjust to the rest of data non selected with
the sample train.

Then, of the same form in glm:

library(nnet)
net <- nnet(response.variable~., data = dataset, subset=train.set)

Or...

z=zelig(response.variable ~., model = "mlogit",data=dataset, subset=train)

But this don't work. I don't know yet if I do the MLR of this way. The
function multinom from nnet library maybe can help but I don't know how can
be the sintaxis in my case.

In case it serves as help in glm I do:

z <- glm(response.variable~., data=dataset, subset=train.set,

Thank you.
