Graham Smith,

As far as I know, LabDSV is not (yet) released, but can be obtained only
from Dave Roberts's web pages. I think you should try to contact Dave
directly if you have problems (his email address can be found on the
LabDSV home pages). The version of LabDSV I have fails R CMD already
when compiling dynamic libraries.

If you need only some single families of functions, you can put the 
needed *.q file in your working directory (is that `folder' in your 
lingo?) and issue 


within your R session. Since most of the support functions (plot,
summary etc.) are together in the same *.q file, this may be sufficient
for you. The documentation is still incomplete, so you may not need to
install all of the package. If you need a more complete set of
functions, you may consider concatenating all *.q files into a single
file called LabDSV and put that where it should be (under LabDSV/R in
library directory in Linux and perhaps something similar in Windows).

As far as I know, Dave Roberts is working with an `official' R release 
for CRAN.

Cheers, jari oksanen
