[R-SIG-Finance] Help with help

I had the same problem when I first installed r.  I ended up
reinstalling selecting custom setup then when it asked me about the help
files I selected the html option (a change from the default).  This
seemed to fix the problem for me and was well worth my time as the
documentation for R actually seems to be pretty good.
