I'm guessing that there was no such package back in the year when 2.6  
was a current version (perhaps 2007?). The current major version of R  
is 2.14, so you should be looking at http://cran.cnr.berkeley.edu/bin/windows/contrib/2.14/

Furthermore you didn't specify a package. There is a package by the  
name 'bayesQR' in the current directory of binary windows packages at  
that mirror.

What package? I dod not see a package name anywhere in your question.  
Is your version number for R really 2.6? Whgt are the results from:


If it is 2.6, then you should first update R to a current version.  
Then install your packages.
