[R] R and samr under Linux

This is my first day with R, pls pardon my newbie gaffs.
Im running under Linux, samr V1.25 and R (V2.4.1 and 2.6.1), 32 and 64 bit.
Either way, when I run using samr library I get the error:
"samr is not a valid package - installed < 2.0.0?"
I see in R source code a conditional leading to this message:
pfile <-system.file ("Meta", "package.rds", package=package, libloc =
The samr does not have a "Meta" directory, or underlying package.rds, as the
packages have. So, it seems to fail this check.
1. It seems to me that the offered Linux samr package V1.25 is not
these versions (2.4 / 2.6) of R. Is this a correct conclusion?
2. R seems to be an interpreted language, and its 'libraries' seem to be
just text files. Thus, it seems I could find a Windows implementation of
samr and copy it to my Linux. Any ideas about this theory?
3. Does R language have a way for me to define which processor in a cluster
like to execute a section of code upon, like in MPI?
Please let me know some of these things, if you can help.
Thanks for helping me,
