Ok, I have downloaded and installed what I think is rpy2 
(rpy2-2.0.8.win32-py2.6.msi from SourceForge) and have installed version 
2.1.3 of the plugin. However, now it says that rpy2 is not installed. I am 
using the stand alone windows version of QGIS 
(QGIS-1.3.0-3-No-GrassSetup.exe). I have also noticed that the error message 
the pervious version of the plugin gave me said that the version of python 
was 2.5.2 while the version of python I installed is 2.6.4. It would seem 
that QGIS is not using the version of python or rpy2 I installed.  How do I 
fix this?

Thanks,

-Aaron
