Ok.  Thanks for the feedback.  What about using bigmemory and bigmatrix as shown here: http://files.meetup.com/1781511/bigmemoryRandLinearAlgebra_BryanLewis.pdf?  I can't figure out if vam is a proprietary package from Paradigm4, or an R package (didn't find when I searched CRAN).  Is there a way utilize the foreach approach illustrated using distributed R packages without incurring the I/O penalty?
