I am trying to run the code for quadratic discriminant analysis with the Spambase data set following the code example in the book "R in a Nutshell" by Joseph Adler (page 443). The line of code:

spam.qda <- qda(formula=is_spam~., data=spambase.training)

gives me an error: Error in qda.default(x, grouping, ...) : rank deficiency in group 1

Can someone please tell me why it does not work with me but appears to do so in the book? I am using R version 2.13.0.

Thanks, Ravi
