Please run the following commands from xterm, Konsole, GNOME-terminal or whatever terminal windows are called these days:
Code:

# Check which repo's are available:
sudo yum repolist enabled
# * if none show run the following:
sudo yum repolist all
# else run
sudo yum search R
# and if it shows nfo about "R" run update:
sudo yum -y update
# and install R, review the list of packages and dependencies, OK it by pressing "y":
sudo yum install R
# If all went fine start R:
R
# And install R Commander as a test:
install.packages("Rcmdr",dependencies=TRUE)
# and exit R:
quit()

If any of the Yum commands fail please post the command and any (error) output in [code]vBB tags[/code], elif any of the R commands fail check the manual.

I have already installed R by command yum install R-devel (after some search on google) and its working fine.
But even after updating (yum update) i am unable to search through available softwares in GUI of Add Remove.
Thanks.

install yumex

for R packages, use install.packages() from within R.
there are methods for installing a lot at once: http://cran.r-project.org/web/views/

fedora is VERY text "yum" centric
yumex and package kit are almost useless

you said you installed " r-devel"
that IS ONLY the source headers !!!
it is NOT the r language

use the terminal
-----for 32 bit ----
Code:

su -
yum search r | less
----- piping to "less" allows you to see the beginning of the VERY LONG list  ----
yum install r.i686

from my SL6.3 32 bit box
