[I thought this has been covered before, but I can't find it in the

PRESS = sum of squares of deletion residuals

Any good book on regression will show you that deletion residual for
multiple regression fitted by least squares is just the raw residual divided
by one minus the hat values (or `leverage values').  And there is a
hatvalues() function in R.  With that, the computation of PRESS should be
fairly straight forward.
