I am trying to get R 2.8.0 for Mac OS from CRAN, but I thing I am
doing something wrong because when R starts I have annoying error

During startup - Warning messages:
1: Setting LC_CTYPE failed, using "C"
2: Setting LC_COLLATE failed, using "C"
3: Setting LC_TIME failed, using "C"
4: Setting LC_MESSAGES failed, using "C"
WARNING: You're using a non-UTF8 locale, therefore only ASCII
characters will work.
Please read R for Mac OS X FAQ (see Help) section 9 and adjust your
system preferences accordingly.

I have tried all suggestions in such section 9 but still get the same
error message. If you can give me some another suggestion It would be
very nice.
