[R] embarrassingly parallel problem - simple loop solution

I have an "embarrassingly parallel" routine that I need to run 24000^2/2 times (based on some microarray data). All I really need to do is parallelize a nested for-loop. But I haven't found a clear list of what packages/commands I'd need to do this. I've got a dual quad core xeon system running RHEL5, so if I could use hyperthreading to increase the number of (virtual) nodes that would be great too.

Appreciate the help.

Chris
