I'm confused. Your 1st email asked about the mirror selection. Now you want
to install from local files. Those are two different problems.

Please consult the 'R Admin' manual, or go back to the list with preferably
concrete questions, or reproducible examples.

Hth, Dirk

Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
