[IPython-user] rpy.princomp missing when using ipython

I'm new to python and have a question/problem.
I am using IPython 0.8.1 (installed from repositories) on Kubuntu 7.10. When I 
import rpy in ipython, I cannot access the rpy.princomp function to perform 
principal component analyses. And why do I have to use "rpy." instead of "r." 
which works in plain python console? This problem only exists when I use 
Ipython, everything is fine in the standard python shell, so I guess the 
problem is in Ipython.
hoping for help

rpy-1.0.3 (from source)
R version 2.7.0 (2008-04-22) (from source)
IPython 0.8.1 (from repositories)
Kubuntu 7.10
