Please do read the 'R Installation and Administration' manual, which 
answers this and all your other questions.

I make this your sixth post on the subject line (and someone using a 
different address has posted with the identical line).  You are still 
sending HTML, so please do study the posting guide (as mentioned in the 
only reply to those posts I see in the list archives).  As it says

   If it is clear that you have done basic background research, you are far
   more likely to get an informative response.
