Hi R-Help,

I have been using R  in Linux (Debian) for the past month. The usual way 
I install packages is through apt. Recently, a new packages "vcd" became 
available on CRAN.  I tried installing it today and found that Debian 
does not seem to support this package. I also found that many other 
packages were unavailable.
Does anyone have any recommended sites where a full list is available? 
If none exist, what would be the best way to move ahead in installing 
say the vcd package.

I am still a novice in using Debian and so please forgive me if some of 
my questions may seem trivial for experienced users.
