Trying to set up multiple spawns of R

Hi. I'm new to the list but I have a small problem with R. I'm trying to set up multiple spawns of R active at the same time on an AMD with a dual core in Vista so that I can cut down my permutation processing time.

I've installed R in multiple places, which I thought was the correct way to do it but whether I use installs at "C:\Program Files\R1" and "C\...\R2", or even separately on the C: and D: drive, whenever I try to load my package (qtl), it gives me the error message:

Error in library(qtl) : there is no package called 'qtl'

The thing is, I've installed the packagen in both places (C\...\R1 and C\...\R2, or both the C: and D: drives) and it still gives me the message. Does anyone know how to set up a simultaneous R spawn? Clearly I'm wrong about how to get it started.
