You should not reply to a message and change the subject.
Create a new thread with you subject.

Did you literally do B^{-1}? That doesn't calculate the inverse of B.
In addition Matrix * Matrix does elementwise multiplication. You should have used %*%.

You could try eigen(solve(B,A)). Not the best way but it might be sufficient for your purpose.

There appears to be package imad on R-forge that has an interface to Lapack's dggev.
