My response was intended to raise questions that you have not yet considered. You should be asking yourself "why?".

There are a bunch of other questions still outstanding as well (which will become apparent if you ever should read the Posting Guide).  I suspect you will find that even if you post the code you used to do the package installation that we will not be able to offer further assistance. Removal of a package from CRAN means that there were problems with its compilation or installation on a standard R setup.

PLEASE do read the posting guide http://www.R-project.org/posting-guide.html
