[R] adjusted t-test with unequal variance

Hi all,
right now i am simply comparing means. obviously this can be done by
the simple t.test respectively the welch test, if var.equal is set to
FALSE.
just like this
t.test( Y ~ group)
t.test( Y ~ group, var.equal = FALSE)
now that i need to compare weighted means i am using the lm function
as an adjusted t-test:
like
lmtest <- ( Y ~ group )
anova(lmtest)
lmtest$fitted.values[data$group==1]
lmtest$fitted.values[data$group==0]
basically this delivers just the same means and p.value like the test
with equal variance.
and here's where my problem is...:
checking bartletts test and the var.test i found that the assumption
of equal variance might be at least venturesome for some of my
variables...
Can I replace the lmtest by something else, assuming variances are not
equal ? I read about a quasi option of glm on the mailing lists...
Thx in advance for any suggestions
