Is libblas.so.2 on your system?  On my Woody system, I have:

bxf4 at c119756-b:~$ find /usr/lib -iname libblas*

I would think it would have been brought in as a dependency of R, but
perhaps you installed R in some non-standard way.  I have blas version
1.1-9 on my system.

bxf4 at c119756-b:~$ apt-cache policy blas 
  Installed: 1.1-9
  Candidate: 1.1-9
  Version Table:
 *** 1.1-9 0
        990 http://http.us.debian.org testing/main Packages
        990 ftp://ftp.debian.org testing/main Packages
        500 http://http.us.debian.org unstable/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Perhaps you can install blas via apt-get or dselect?

(for example, 'apt-get install blas')
