There is no precompiled version of lme4 for Windows because the last
version I uploaded caused an error under R-1.7.1.  I used a function
that will be available in R-1.8.0 but not in R-1.7.1

I have another version that does install successfully under R-1.7.1
but does not install under R-1.8.0 (beta).  I'm going to try to
isolate the problem later today.  Even if I am not successful in
getting it to load under 1.8.0 I will upload it for 1.7.1 and work on
the 1.8.0 problem before the release of 1.8.0.

Short reply: There should be a Windows version on CRAN within 3

It looks like you were trying to load the source package as if it was
a binary package.
