Perhaps I am not update (I am not yet passed to the 1.4) but it seems  
to me that
you should use expresso in order to get summary values if you want to  
different type of algorithms.
Furthermore if I don't wrong you should apply background correction
before normalization.



data.gcrma.invariant<-normalize(data.gcrma, method="invariantset")
