What `older version'? Perhaps you would like to start from the current version of R, 2.1.0 or even 2.1.1 beta? We don't support 2.0.1 any more. (Do see the posting guide.)

This message indicates a problem with your X11 fontpaths. See the archives for many such discussions. One possibility is that you are using an (approximately) 100dpi screen and only have 75dpi fonts installed or in your path.

You haven't told us your OS and it is very likely the solution is OS-dependent. (And not just `Linux', either, distribution-dependent.)
