I think you have misinterpreted some message(s), because I don't know of any place where we suggest that you should ask r-help list about installation problems on aroma.affymetrix. Let me know if I am wrong so the documentation can be corrected.

That explains how to install the R.oo and R.utils packages, but it is certainly not the suggested way to install aroma.affymetrix. *Please* let me know where you got this from.

See the Page 'Installation, Updates & Patches' on the aroma.affymetrix website (http://www.braju.com/R/aroma.affymetrix/) for installation instructions.
