[R] Installing SJava

Apologies, I am a non-techie so am finding installing SJava (which I need for RMAGEML) very frustrating indeed.  

I am running rw2001 on WindowsXP with Java - jre1.5.0_02. Could somebody please explain to me step-by-step how to install it as I have tried all the help files. The website’s (HYPERLINK
"http://www.omegahat.org/RSJava/"http://www.omegahat.org/RSJava/)
instructions for installing the Windows source are definitely not Windows commands (are they UNIX? The file is not even a zip as stated in the instructions!).  

I have also tried using the command “R CMD INSTALL HYPERLINK
"http://www.omegahat.org/RSJava/SJava_0.68-0.tar.gz"SJava_0.68-0.tar.gz” in
R but just get a “syntax error”. I have tried changing the file to a zip and then installing from the R GUI (“install packages from local zip”) but when I type library(SJava) I get “Error in library(SJava) : 'SJava' is not a valid package -- installed < 2.0.0?”.  

Please could somebody explain any way to do this (step by step) to me like I’m a two year old. I have no interest in actually calling Java, I just want to be able to read MAGE-ML. I have saved the source file (HYPERLINK
"http://www.omegahat.org/RSJava/SJava_0.68-0.tar.gz"SJava_0.68-0.tar.gz) in
my C drive (viz. c:\ HYPERLINK
"http://www.omegahat.org/RSJava/SJava_0.68-0.tar.gz"SJava_0.68-0.tar.gz)…wh
at now?
