Thanks to recent threads here and a *lot* of help from Jan, I am 
learning how to set up my Mac (OS 10.1.5) to run R w/ XFree86.  I'm 
finking my way along a steep learning curve, have managed to get up to 
version 1.5.1-1 through fink update-all.

(1) fink list "r-*" reveals file r-atlas.  Should I install that in 
addition to r-base and r-recommended?

(2) I have been seeing "atlas" crop up in other places.  Does it have a 
special significance within Unix?

Thanks to you all.
