Dear Simon,
   many thanks for your reply!
   oops, sorry for the confusion........that was a typo. I HAVE 
installed the latest version 0.999375-13 (I dropped a 9 in my 
message......). It is this latest version that DOES not install in R 
2.6.2. I should mention that I need this latest version because 
earlier versions generated divergent scale estimates and Dr. Bates 
has very nicely reworked the estimation scheme so that divergent 
estimates would not appear. I know that 0.999375-13 DOES WORK on a 
Power PC Mac. As my message stated, it does NOT install on an Intel 

SO, the problem remains. Any help is much appreciated!
