[R] RJDBC error with db2 driver

Anybody knows what could be the problem?
I am trying to use the class4 (I also tried the class2) JDBC driver for
DB2 and I get the following error. This driver is for db2 9.5, so it
does not require a matching license .jar file, and I tried redownloading
the driver.

I am running R 2.6 on Windows XP, and my java version is sun's 1.6_10

library(RJDBC) 
drv
<-JDBC("com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Driver","C:/jars/db2jcc4.jar",identifier.quot
e="'")
Error in .jfindClass(as.character(driverClass)[1]) : class not found

The only thing I find bizarre is that I cannot view the content of this
jar file (unless I use winzip)
E.g.
jar -t db2jcc4.jar

Just hangs.
