   my imagemap package is all R code - if you can extract the .tar.gz 
file (ask a friendly local linux user to do it, or install cygwin) then 
you just need to source the .R files.

  Okay, I've zipped this up here:


  note this is probably *not* an installable package. Unzip it, then 
source() the .R file. Also, it was designed for R 1.8.x, and R has moved 
on so things may have changed and not work anymore. Someone could 
probably easily build a windows .zip package for installation...
