Seriously, there is one entire manual dedicated to 'Writing R extensions',
and there are a number of tutorials floating around on the web, for example
Peter Rossi (at U of Chicago's Booth Business school) has one.

There is also an entire manual on 'R installation and administration', and
there must be a gazillion tutorials on the web.  Ubuntu seems to have a large
market and mind share, its installation cdrom is a live cdrom you can test
fist, and it has very good R support via binaries on CRAN.

Good luck,  Dirk
