>From the notes I see that for 2.11 Hmisc is not supported and the suggestion is made to build from source. I am on a Windows 7 platform and I got all of the tools and successfully built 'R' from source. I changed to gnuwin32 and entered make all recommended. Even though the tar.gz (source) version of Hmisc has been downloaded and placed in library/recommended folder the build process doesn't seem to pick it up. What do I need to do to build this from source? Right now whenever I start R I get the error:

Error: package 'Hmisc' could not be loaded
In addition: Warning message:
In library(pkg, character.only = TRUE, logical.return = TRUE, lib.loc = lib.loc) :
  there is no package called 'Hmisc'

And I cannot run anything.

Thank you for the suggestions.
