       I'm trying to install R under Fedora 18 Linux, and I'm confused. 
  The "R Installation and Administration" manual, sec. 1.1, says, "The 
simplest way is to download the most recent R-x.y.z.tar.gz file". 
However, I don't know how to get that.  My favorite CRAN mirror offers a 
"Precombiled binary" via "Download R for Linux".  That takes me to an 
index with options debian, redhat, suse, and ubuntu.  Redhat gives me an 
index with options el4, el5, fedora10, and fedora11.  I don't think I 
want any of those.
