Hi Zhao, Hi Thomas,

you two seem to be asking the same question. The CDF data (e.g.
rgu34acdf) are just normal packages, like any other package in R. To use
them, use

   R CMD INSTALL mgu74acdf_0.1.tar.gz 

on the Linux (shell) command line, or if you use Windows, the "Install
package from local zip file" option of the GUI.

Enjoy -
