It looks like 'SparseM' did not get installed [correctly].  SparseM
contains native code (Fortran and C), so that could be the cause of
your of installation problems.  Also, SparseM is on CRAN, that is, it
should be possible to install with install.packages() (==without
biocLite()).  Since this is a CRAN package giving you problems, please
post further questions on SparseM to the r-help list (larger/right
audience, greater chances for prompt help etc.).

FYI, the prebuild binary SparseM v0.78 installs and works perfectly
well on WinXP.
