Ther are several package, if you want to use WinBUGS (not recommended), 
there is the CRAN package R2WinBUGS, and if you want to use OpenBUGS 
(the "new" version of WinBUGS), use BRugs, which is available from the 
"CRAN extras" repository hosted by Brian Ripley (which is a default 
repository for R for Windows, hence install.packages("BRugs") should work).
