      I'm not certain what you are asking, but I wonder if you want 
"errors in X regression".  If yes, have you considered the "sem" package 
("structural equations modeling")? 

      If you don't already have this package, you can get it using the 
"download.packages" under Windows or by following the instructions in 
the FAQs. 

      hope this helps.
