Dear R-help,

I'm sure this is contained within the documentation, but I have not yet located
it (with good effort nonetheless). I am attempting to install the binary for
randomForests. After unpacking the zip, I extracted the contents to
my R-2.8.1 folder. However, when I try to execute the command
library(randomForest) I get an unable to locate error. Is there another
library request that needs to be made? I see that the zip extraction created
the RandomForest folder under the R-2.8.1 folder. Is there a way to
specify this location within the library command?

Thanks for your help,
