[R] JGR starter problems

I'm running R 2.4.1 on SuSE Linux 10.2. My system is an AMD based PC with 2
Gigs of ram and abundant HD space.
I have always run R from the console without problems, but in the interests of
broadening R's user-base, and reducing the complexity of my computing
environment, I am hoping to convince my PTB that R is a viable alternative to
Excel under Windows - heh. Since they like pretty pictures I'm experimenting
with graphic interfaces for R in linux. The Windows interface is fine, but I
would prefer to stick to linux if at all possible. I've been trying the JGR
environment and so far it loads and looks nice but it doesn't seem to be able
to find the key libraries such as "base." There are two errors that appear
in the initial messages - one being that JGR can't load .../stats.so, and
that R_GlobalEnv is an undefined symbol. And the other is that
options("defaultPackages") is not as shown below. I presume this is probably
a compilation error on my part and would like to know what I've done wrong.
The initial messages when JGR loads are below.
Error in dyn.load(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now)) :
