      I'm not familiar with the "lm" test.  I used to work out the order 
starting from plots of the autocorrelation and partial autocorrelation 
functions, see "acf" and "pacf" in R.  Traditional estimation can be 
handled with the "arima" command. 

      Beyond this, have you seen the time series discussion on Venables 
and Ripley (2002) Modern Applied Statistics with S (Springer)?  Also, 
have you reviewed the posting guide, 
"http://www.R-project.org/posting-guide.html"?  Following the steps 
there may help you answer many of your own questions and improve the 
quality of the response you get from this list when those steps do not 
yield a satisfactory answer. 

      In particular, have you tried "www.r-project.org" -> search -> "R 
site search"?  You might find the package "dse" particularly useful, 
especially regarding state space modeling and more recent time series 

      hope this helps.  spencer graves
