   It's possible that neither of these will help, but

(1) you can look at the source code of the predict method 

(2) you can look at the source reference ("Modern Applied Statistics in 
S", Venables and Ripley) to see if it gives more information (although 
it might not); there's a chance that you can get the information you 
need via a google books search
