[R-SIG-Mac] Problem installing packages

I am a total newbie to R. I am using R (2.4.1) on Mac OS X 10.4.8 and
trying to desperately install some packages using GUI Packages &
Data/Package Installer

Every time I get:

trying URL
Content type 'application/x-tar' length 439316 bytes
opened URL
downloaded 429Kb

Error in gzfile(file, "r") : unable to open connection
In addition: Warning message:
cannot open compressed file 'ncdf/DESCRIPTION'

[I do have administration rights on my system.]

What am I doing wrong?

Any help will be much appreciated.
