I cannot reproduce this, hence we need much more information in order to reproduce the problem.

Which OS are we talking about? XP or Vista? If Vista: Are you running R with administrator privileges when trying to install the packages? Please do so (e.g. by right-clicking appropriately when starting R).

Which version of R? (I guess 2.7.0 release from the paths given below) Which version of DBI (I guess it does not matter). Which CRAN mirror? (I guess it does not matter).
