[Rd] Package installation

Hi all,
I'm very new to R.
I have installed R 1.9.0 on Linux (Fedora).

Now I got an self-made package comprising R functions as well as C-Code 
which are used in several R functions.

I installed the package without any error (see install log below).
Then, I checked in /usr/lib/R/library if the package izbi exists and it 

But whenever I try to load the library on the command line I got the 
following error.
 > library(izbi)
Error in .find.package(package, lib.loc, verbose = verbose) :
         Object "izbi" not found
Error in library(izbi) : .First.lib failed

Unfortunately, the whole package is written and tested under R 1.8.0 on 
Linux (RedHat 9.0) and there are no problems loading and working with 
the library. To have a more cross check I installed the same package on 
my laptop using SUSE Linux with R 1.8.0. Ther are also no problems with 
loading and working with the package.

Does anybody knows what I can do?
Many thanks, Toralf
