Your install line is correct.

It is likely that you need to upgrade to R 2.12.x, though you didn't 
provide your R version (likely older) or operating system (likely 
Windows) per the posting guide (please read this before posting again).

R-Forge only provides binary packages for the current major R release, 
which is at this point R 2.12.x

Alternately, on Windows, install Duncan's Rtools, and build from source.
