Have a look at the 'ncp' paramater in ?qbeta -- this (default=0)
is the non-centrality parameter for the beta distribution, and
qbeta is the inverse function of the distribution.

  The noncentral Beta distribution (with ?ncp? = lambda) is defined
  (Johnson et al, 1995, pp. 502) as the distribution of X/(X+Y)
  where X ~ chi^2_2a(lambda) and Y ~ chi^2_2b.

i.e. as in qbeta(p,a,b,ncp=lambda)

Hoping this helps,
