Absolutely no reason to feel stupid -- some of us have been fortunate
to have worked on both MacOS and Unix simultaneously for a very long
time (because our servers were Suns and our desktops Mac). We
are obviously very happy with Mac OS X, but we have an unfair advantage.

Maybe this helps. Open the terminal application, then issue the  

1. curl -f -L -P - -O http://gifi.stat.ucla.edu/pub/R-1.6.0.tar.gz
2. sudo mv R-1.6.0.tar.gz /usr/local/lib
3. sudo tar zxvf  R-1.6.0.tar.gz -C /usr/local/lib
4. sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/R/bin/R /usr/local/bin/R
5. rehash
6. R

Isn't that completely intuitive ? If one of them goes wrong, let me  
The first five should work.
