Dear Kon, 

1. please only mail to <r-help at stat.math.ethz.ch> OR to
<r-help at r-project.org> as we receive every mail of you twice if
you mail to both. 

2. please read the posting guide. A link is attached
every e-mail:

"PLEASE do read the posting guide
http://www.R-project.org/posting-guide.html and provide commented,
minimal, self-contained, reproducible code."

especially the section "do your homework". It means use search on
r-project.org and rseek.org and have a look at the documentation.

Don't expect others to do your homework. And show some effort!

Using search would have pointed you to a guide of Ricci on fitting
distributions for example:

If you programmed something and it does not work as expected- THEN mail
to the list. 


PS You don't know Debbie Zhang by coincidence?...
