Dear Alberto,

There are several R packages available on CRAN for structural equation modeling: sem, lavaan, and OpenMx come immediately to mind. If your model is recursive with only observed variables, then you could just use lm(). If your model is nonrecursive with only observed variables, then you could also use the systemfit package.

I hope this helps,
