I still have problems to install R 1.6. I have tried both ways.

1- With Fink:

I deleted the whole /sw directory, installed fink again and installed 
r-base. The following error prevents installation:

	checking for /sw/lib/tkConfig.sh... /sw/lib/tkConfig.sh
	./configure: /sw/lib/tclConfig.sh: No such file or directory
	make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.
	### execution of (export failed, exit code 2
	Failed: compiling r-base-1.6.0-1 failed

2- Using Jan's instructions:

	unpack the R distribution in /usr/local/lib
	sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/R/bin/R /usr/local/bin/R

Here I had the following error: ln: /usr/local/bin/R: No such file or directory

I then creatde the missing directories and the ln command went 
apparently fine. However I cannot launch R and get a "command not 
found error".

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I feel really stupid and find 
the learning curve of unix pretty steep!
