The volunteer who is providing these backports for CRAN indicated a few days
ago that he is being slowed down due to network issues.  So sorry, right now
you either have to wait, fine someone else to build the .deb files on etch
for you, or do it yourself.  We do have the Ubuntu backports in place so if
you were contemplating switching your Xandros install with the Ubuntu/EEE
setup you'd be covered...
