(I'm redirecting this to the general R list, since it's not
particularly Mac specific any more.)

Despite your claim, there are statistics-oriented tutorials available in
the "other docs" section (esp. Faraway and Fox). However, if I recall
correctly

and if you need split-plot ANOVA etc., these may not be quite advanced
enough

(statistically) for you (Faraway has about 5 pages on block designs).
You may need to buy or

borrow a book: I would recommend Crawley's
books (Statistics: an Introduction using R has only 4 or so pages,
Statistical Computing

has a whole 16-page chapter); Venables and Ripley (the bible) has a
chapter on random and

mixed effects, and Pinheiro and Bates is an entire book on mixed models
... all of these

except Statistical Computing are listed on the R books page. Faraway
also has

"Linear models with R", which has a chapter on block designs.

That should give you some starting points ...
