Please don't forget to copy R-help on your reply - other people are
likely to have more insight.
My understanding is that you want to replicate the shaded polygons
produced by plot.svm on your own plot. That's why I suggested you
first try add=TRUE, and if that doesn't work, then look at the code
for plot.svm so you can see how the predicted values are calculated on
a grid to be plotted. R is open source - you can extract the section
from that function that does what you want, and make your own code to
add it to another plot.
I have no idea what "the tutorial" is; I suggested two things you
could try based on the help and my understanding of R.
