I am trying to use the multinom function from the Venables and Ripley
library on data dervied from satellite images and geographic data bases.
I am using S+ 4.0 under Windows NT. I can't get the data to run whenever
I try more than 100 observations. The left hand side variable has seven
different classes. Does anyone have any experience with the limits to
sample size with the multinom function? One of the problems is that it
seems to have 100 iterations coded into the function. Any suggestions
for dealing with large sample sizes?

Thanks,
