It is a zip file. If you remove the contributed libraries this comes down
to 1248kb which does go on a `diskette'.

Just run zip -d rw0613b.zip rw0613/library/spatial/\*  etc.

Perhaps next time it would be a good idea to separate the contributed
libraries from base R, as they are much larger now (for which I take
the blame).
