First, access R progranm from “Comprehensive R Archive Network” ( CRAN ). The website is following: https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/sos/index.html
The R program that we will be downloading is around 60 MB (for the Windows version), so if you have a slow Internet connection, it might take a long time to download.”
Note that there should be supplemental instructions for installing R on Mac OS X or Linux.” 
You do not need the graphical client for Mac or Linux, but you can experiment with it if you want to.”
I have personal computer that have Microsoft windows with later version, thus, I have no problem to download and install R program provided by instructor. 
However, the computer system has reported that the R installer has an ‘unidentified publisher’ or ‘unknown publisher’ and ask if it should be run. 
I just click “yes.” Everything goes fine then.

Furthermore, we may use library computers or public computers in the coming weeks, in this case, the system administrators can disable installing applications from non-trusted sources. 
We better to persuade library administrators that R program is trustworthy or I will run the installer from a standard account and install into my own file area.
We wish we could run R program without problems during statistic course and even beyond such as for daily purposes or research project.
