    I have R-1.4.1 rpms that have been compiled on a redhat 7.2 system
and should install without problems that I can let you have.  However,
I compiled it using the 3.0.4 version of gcc and g77 so you'll need to 
install the runtime libraries for gcc 3.0.4.  They're a part of 
the redhat updates so you can download them from http://www.redhat.com/errata
or any suitable mirror. Oh yes, I've compiled R with pentium specific 
optimizations so you'll need a pentium or better to run it.
