Hi Paulo,

You might also want to look at something like the glmnet package (Friedman,
Hastie, and Tibshirani). This carries out penalized regression, is designed
to work with high numbers of predictors/inputs/columns and relatively few
samples/obervations/rows, and is very fast.

See: http://www-stat.stanford.edu/~hastie/Papers/glmnet.pdf

HTH, Mark.
