There are two (D)COM servers for R, on by Thomas Baier that has its own 
mailing list, and one by Duncan Temple Lang (at www.omegahat.org and in 
the Omegahat area on CRAN).

It is impossible for us to help with a message as vague as `some strange
errors coming up', so I suggest you read


and then post on the appropriate mailing list for whichever server you are 

[The Baier-version list is listed at the bottom of its readme.txt file.]
