Why have you stopped at this point?  (My experiences have bee quite good with following advice.)  You have been given a very specific warning (not an error). It is telling you where to find additional information. It is your responsibility to educate yourself further. The document referred to can be found by pulling down the Help menu (while running R.app)  and choosing "R Help".
