Dear Rodrigo,

I'm going to assume from your description that you're using a Windows OS. In that case, you can download Windows binary packages for the current version of R from the packages' pages on CRAN (e.g., http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/car/index.html for the car package -- note, BTW, lower-case car not CAR) or from http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/2.7/ (or from the corresponding locations on a CRAN mirror). Once downloaded, you can install from the "Packages -> Install package(s) from local zip files" menu.

The mass and boot packages are part of the standard R distribution and don't have to be downloaded or installed separately.

I hope this helps,
 John
