[R-sig-Geo] Install problem with 'sp'

I have always used the R spatial packages on my home computer.  I wanted 
to use them on my department's server, but of course you can't install 
packages to the local directories.  I thought I could download the 
necessary packages into my directory and use the lib.loc option in 
library().  Everything was going smoothly until I got to the 'sp' package:

 > library(sp, lib.loc="w:/R_Packages")
Error in load(dataFile, ns) : ReadItem: unknown type 241
In addition: Warning message:
package 'sp' was built under R version 2.3.0
Error: unable to load R code in package 'sp'
Error: package/namespace load failed for 'sp'

The R version on the server is 2.2.1 and the 'sp' version is 0.8-14.  
Anyone know any conflicts or problems with the package?  By the way, my 
ultimate goal is just to use the globalG.test() in 'spdep' so I would be 
open to workarounds that didn't require 'sp'.  Thanks for your time.
