Having found the online version of SimpleR, I wanted to to download the 
respective data:
"The data sets for these notes are available from the CSI math 
department (http://www.math.csi.cuny.edu/Statistics/R/simpleR)
and must be installed prior to this."

There it says:
"The simpleR package is now inside the UsingR package available from 
CRAN. In the Windows GUI, this may be installed from a menubar item. 
Otherwise, the following command > install.packages("UsingR") will work ..."
I did, and got a package of
Content type 'application/x-gzip' length 502288 bytes (490 Kb) 
downloaded and installed. Alas, the command given in the notes:
 > library("Simple")
Error in library("Simple") : there is no package called 'Simple'
seems not to work. But when I try
 > installed.packages()
UsingR shows up.

Can anyone please enlighten me, what is going on here? Thanks,
