It wants to compute a*x given a and x, and then use ordinarly least 
squares to estimate b0 and b1 in y = b0 + b1*I(a*x).  If that is what 
you intend, you must supply a.  If you want to estimate a, e.g., with no 
constant, use   y~x-1.  Does this answer the question?  hope this 
helps.  spencer graves
