I have installed the custom CDF package and still not able
to finish creating the probe package.  This is my error:
Importing the data.
Error in rep(NA, max(pm1, mm1, pm2, mm2)) : invalid 'times' argument 
Can you give me a hint to figure out the problem?

You get the probe_tab file from Affymetrix and then use
makeProbePackage() in the matchprobes package.
