Installing R on CentOS 4.5

Hey everyone,

For work I'm supposed be installing R (stats program) and using JRI to communicate with it from Java. However, I can't get R installed on our sever. The server is running CentOS 4.5, and when I do:
sudo yum install R
I get nothing. I also tried to install it from an RPM package, but it couldn't satisfy dependencies. I tried to install the dependencies, only to need more dependencies[dependency hell]. Is there a quick way to install R using Yum? If not, any ideas?

I guess you need to add the appropriate repo in your repository list. Visit select the proper mirror and add it in your repository list, then after refreshing you can yum install R.

I can't be more precise as I always used debian-based distro.
