Dear List:
I just successfully installed R 2.8.0 (under Windows XP SP2, 1GB RAM) and wanted to run update.packages. When I first called chooseCRANmirror I obtained the following error message:

> chooseCRANmirror()

Warning message:
In open.connection(con, "r") :
  kann nicht mit 'cran.r-project.org' auf Port 80 verbinden

What should I do?
Thanks for helping.

Men fight and lose the battle, and the thing that they fought for comes about in spite of their defeat, and then it turns out not to be what they meant, and other men have to fight for what they meant under another name. (William Morris)
