Oooh .. jealous :-)

Don't really have one off the top of my head, does this help?


If you have more specific questions, I'd be happy to answer.

> Also, if I download the R Mac binary, does it work like Windows, in the sense that I just click and install please?

Yes, you'll download a *.pkg file which you can open by double
clicking. I believe this will kick off the installer (or a new window
with the installer in it).
