As i'm not an "R-expert-user", i will describe what i do:

i) open Rgui.exe
ii) ivoke foreign library : >library(foreign)
iii) i try to read an .xpt file (from Systat 9): >datos <-
iv) then the program crashes. Norton CrashGuard alerts the multiple failures:

Windows 98 Version 4.10.1998

i'm afraid that this is some kind of incompatibility bug, but i hope that it
could be 
repaired easily.
