  There are three ways you can get the inverse-link function

1. dig into the family object: binomial(link="probit")$linkinv
2. know that the probit link is the qnorm() (Normal quantile) function,
and the inverse-probit is pnorm() (the Normal CDF). (Similarly, it
seems that a lot of users don't know that plogis()/qlogis() similarly
provide the logistic and logit functions ...
3. As David Winsemius suggests, use predict(...,type="response")
(but options #1 and #2 are useful in providing flexibility).
