** High Priority **

I have recently installed the R program in Windows Vista. However, I am experiencing problem installing some of the packages. Specifically, I wanted to install BRugs package running R as an administrator. I issued the following command in R and received the following error message.

> install.packages("BRugs")
Warning in install.packages("BRugs"):
  argument 'lib' is missing: 'C\Users\norman\Documents/R/win-library/2.8'
Warning: unable to access index for repository http://cran-za.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/2.8 
Warning: unable to access index for repository http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/RWin/bin/windows/contrib/2.8 
Warning message: package 'BRugs' is not available

Your prompt response will be greatly appreciated.
