Dear R people,

I have been trying to use install.package() to install packages from CRAN.
The machine is a Windows 2000 with Pentium 4. 
The machine operates under a proxy environment. I have followed advices I
found on R-help mailing list: change internet2.dll to internet.dll so that R
will use the same setting as Internet Explorer uses. After I made the
change, R crashes when I attempt to
use install.package(). 

Thanks in advance for advices!
