Dear R Users;

I am an R user who has recently bought a new laptop;Toshiba Satellite U405 running on both Windows Vista and Ubuntu.

I have problems on the wondows vista when installing packages. The argument 'lib' is missing. How do i solve this problem?

Illustration:

> install.packages("epicalc")

Warning in install.packages("epicalc") :   argument 'lib' is missing: using
'C:\Users\lazurus\Documents/R/win-library/2.7'

package 'epicalc' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked

The downloaded packages are in        

C:\Users\lazurus\AppData\Local\Temp\RtmpMrOxin\downloaded_packages updating HTML package descriptions

## problem 2 is about downloading R without internet connection I have failed to get internet working under ubuntu for both wireless LAN and Ethernet cable and therefore i cannot download R from the net. Both wireless and ethernet are not detected at all leave alone connecting to the internet. I am using Atheros AR5007EG wireless network adapter, Marvel Yukon 88E8040T PCI-E Fat Ethernrt Controller. Internet works fine under the windows Vista system but not on the Ubuntu side
Anyhelp will be appreciated.

Kind regards,
