I did the same installation a week or two ago.  The same downloading
process occurred, but not so many iterations.  I don't know if it was
"normal" or not , but the system seems to work very well.

I recently installed R 2.9.2 on a new Windows platform. Everything seemed
to installed OK. I then downloaded the latest Tinn-R ( I think) and
as I have always done I selected R -> Configure -> Permanent. I was greeted
with a dialog box asking me for a mirror site. I don't remember this prompt
before but I decided to play along and I select a mrror site. Then the
process takes off installing what appears to be every package that has ever
been conceived for R (translate - alot of packages). Is this normal? I
repeated this about three times because at the end it gave me an error
indicating sus-and-such library was not found. Each time it was a different
library that couldn't be found. Finally on the third try it seemed to
complete without error. Again I have never had to go through so many steps
to get Tinn-R installed and configured. Did I do something wrong? Is there
a bug in this package or a problem with the integration between R 2.9.2 and

Thank you.
