Thanks to everyone who has responded (esp. Michael, I greatly
appreciate but also recognize that getting R on my machine is not your
career).  Your last response was (basically) uninstall, reboot, retry
Synaptic, if no good try:

judson at judson:~$ sudo wget

judson at judson:~$ sudo dpkg -i r-base-core_2.9.0-2hardy0_i386.deb


dpkg: error processing r-base-core_2.9.0-2hardy0_i386.deb (--install):
 package architecture (i386) does not match system (lpia)

How is this?  I'm way underprepared here but it's a Dell Inspiron Mini
9", Intel Atom ~1.7 ghz

This message is hiding something else.  The Atom is in the i386
lineage as surely as Mine That Bird comes down from Seattle Slew, no?
Thanks everyone.  Judson
