INSTRUCTIONS FOR DOWNLOADING R TO YOUR COMPUTER Download from http://www.r-project.org Go to "Download R" for a list of CRAN (Comprehensive R Archive Network) sites to choose from for download. You should choose a nearby site, e.g. Carnegie-Mellon or Washington University ( http://lib.stat.cmu.edu/R/CRAN or http://cran.wustl.edu ). Click on the site you chose, and you will see instructions on what to download. Pick one of the "precompiled binary distributions" in the top box on the screen for your operating system (Linux, MacOS X, or Windows).

(This means: save the file, e.g. to the Desktop, then go to Desktop, double-click on the icon, and answer all questions, until the installation is complete.)
