It seems that the links have changed so that the part of the url that reads:

        http:maths.newcastle.edu.au/~rking

needs to be replaced with:

        http://tolstoy.newcastle.edu.au

That is, the link has changed from:

        http://maths.newcastle.edu.au/~rking/R/help/04/02/1168.html to:

        http://tolstoy.newcastle.edu.au/R/help/04/02/1168.html

Alternately google for the message id, which is:

        <20040221000411.C14FC397E@mprdmxin.myway.com>
