[R] library() with v. 1.5.0 for Mac OS X Carbon

I am having trouble with the library function of R Version 1.5.0 for Mac 
OS X Carbon when I try to load libraries that did not come with the R 
installation. For example, I put the Biobase library from 
bioconductor.org in the 'library' folder. R cannot find it, even though 
it can find the pre-installed libraries:

 > library() # this lists standard libraries such as 'boot', but does not 
list 'Biobase'
 > library('boot') # this loads 'boot'
 > library('Biobase')
Error in library("Biobase") : There is no package called `Biobase'

I think I need to somehow install the new library like I did with the 
Mac UNIX version of R, but I don't know how to do this with the Carbon 
version. I would appreciate any help with this.
