This is indeed not working correctly.

Try selecting "Other Repository" and then in the field that pops up  
right next to it: http://www.bioconductor.org

Select "Binary Format Packages" if you want to install binaries, else  
it will install source format.

Press "Get List"

Select package or (all) packages and press "Install Selected"


Note:  Binaries have been built for the CRAN version of R. If you did  
a vanilla install from CRAN it will work.
             If you did build R on Tiger with gcc 4.0, you will have  
to install from source.
