I just have a basic linux knowladge. Could someone help me with the following problem. I am a research student and using a university linux cluster. I have, so far, used Matlab on the cluster for my programming, which is already available on the linux cluster. Now, however, I would like to install R GNU (see: http://www.r-project.org/) just for my purposes (I think it should be installed just on my user accout). Another, question is how to install extra packages for R on this cluster.
