[R] Installing packages from command line on Linux RHEL4

   I am a System Administrator, and thus have very little knowledge of R itself. I have been asked to install a list of some 200 packages (from CRAM) to R. Rather than installing each package manually, I was hoping I could script this. I've written a BASH script that hopefully will do this, but I'm wondering about the Mirror Selection portion of the installation process. I've looked and can't find anywhere a parameter to supply that specifies a mirror to use so that I don't have to manually select it for each package I want to install. In this case, with nearly 200 packages to install, this could become quite tedious. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
