[R] Installation of R in Windows

I tried to install R (V 1.9.1) on an XP Home Edition box with loads of disk space and 256 MB of RAM. During installation, I get messages stating that some files are corrupted. I used two copies of the install exe downloaded from different sites and still get the same messages at the same spots in the install. What do I need to do to get around this?

I ran md5sum on the downloaded exe file:

C:\WINDOWS\Temp>md5sum rw1091.exe
c45bbe46e9a9bc1c0995e896f3bd4537 *rw1091.exe

This seems to be different from what is shown at http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/base/md5sum.txt:

2e92742add3194fc22ada0cd2634ac61 *rw1091.exe

What's going on?

TIA for any help.
