I guess you have already read the references given in ?nnet:
Ripley, B. D. (1996) Pattern Recognition and Neural Networks. Cambridge.
Venables, W. N. and Ripley, B. D. (2002) Modern Applied Statistics with
S. Fourth edition.  Springer.

If so, what about specifying some more details so that people can help?
It's also a good idea to ask the package authors / maintainers for help,
since he / she regularly knows the answer.
