This message is, I believe, separate from the error.  It is saying
that the data package hgu133plus2cdf was built with R 2.0.0.  It
_should_ work just fine with R 2.0.1.

I suspect this is library path issue.  Can you look and see if the
hgu133plus2cdf package was installed to C:/PROGRA~1/R/rw2001/library
on your machine?  If you see a directory there called hgu133plus2cdf,
then it was installed.

If you don't see it, I wonder if you also have a R/rw2000/library
where it did get installed.
