I should be more specific here. It works if you use Mozilla 1.2 to go
directly to the SearchEngine.html page in your $R_HOME. But
if you use help.start() from R, you typically use Mozilla 1.1 from
fink (the GTK version), which does not work. A quick hack is not to
say help.start(), but to say

system(paste("open -a  

This works for me and gives me the Carbon Mozilla 1.2. This does NOT  
with Navigator, OmniWeb, and fortunately also not with MSIE.

What also works is defining a script /usr/local/bin/netscape with

open -a Mozilla /usr/local/lib/R/doc/html/index.html

and then using help.start().
