Thanks to everyone who responded. The ReadMe file did the trick. It is too bad that it is so well hidden :)

I have installed Graphviz 2.20.3 as is recommended on the Bioconductor site but basically R cannot seem to find the needed dll files.  So, even though I have added the appropriate directories to the system path R cannot seem to find them. Any tips would be appreciated.

Be sure to read the installation instructions. Unfortunately they really hid them. You have to download and detar the source package and then look at the README in it.

Regarding the path, I have graphviz installed in C:\Program Files\Graphviz2.20 on my Windows Vista system yet it works so at least on Windows I don't think it matters that there are spaces in the path.
