I need some quick advice/help on loading packages.  I want to write a 
simple function to load a number of packages I intend to use at a 
conference presentation.  I'm thinking of something like:

             fn.install <- function(){install.packages(c("ggplot2", 
"scales"),  repos = "c:\\temp")}

There will be many more than just the two I listed.  All the zip files 
are in a Windows directory c:\temp.  Will this work?
