Hmm... indeed, there is an example just under half a page long on rpart in "Using R 
for Data Analysis and Graphics". The other documents on the "Contributed Documents" 
page do not mention it, nor does the FAQ, by the way. The FAQ does contain a pointer 
to the MASS3 page. Other than the online complement to the book on that page, I 
haven't seen anything in the FAQ that promises to be a freely available "good 
introduction to doing statistics in R" (for the generic scientist...)

Well, then I will reword my question as: what are good, freely (online) available 
introductions to statistics in R for the generic scientist, and where can they be 
found if not via google and the like?
