I just bought a copy of "Bayesian Data Analysis", 2nd edition, by Gelman,
Carlin, Stern & Rubin, at JSM.  The Appendix C, "Example of computation in R
and Bugs", points to http://www.stat.columbia.edu/~gelman/bugsR/, which has
instructions/code for running WinBUGS from within R.  Looks like that
appendix is on that web site as well.
