As a first-time user, I have just installed R1.2.3 under Windows 98, 
and have encountered the following problems:

(1)  When I got to the command


in the session of Appendix A (A sample session) of An Introduction to 
R, I got the warning  message

file.show(): file morley.tab does not exist

although this dataset _is_ listed among datasets known to R.

(2)  I have downloaded the 'foreign' package and put it in the 

c:\Program Files\R\rw1023\library\foreign

What is the command to  find out whether it is recognised by R?

With a view to (1), how do I ensure that 'foreign' is recognised by 

Help would be most appreciated.
