[R] bivariate interpolation

Hi. I'm trying to take a data set with two independent and one dependent variable and enter a x,y value to predict the dependent with a nonparametric technique. I've been using interpp in the akima package, (windows xp, R 2.4.1), but get values that are orders of magnitude off when the predictors are slightly out of the range of the data set. Can you recommend a function for me? I've read that predict.loess has the same problem or just lists NA. Smooth.spline looks good, but can only do one predictor instead of bivariate. I've tried help.search("predict"), but couldn't find what I needed. Thanks.
