It's in the Limma Users Guide (Hint: look at page 101). Try to be more specific with your questions, generally asking for tutorials and commands to blindly run isn't the best way to learn how or why you're doing something.

page no. 101 you have specified. this is for single channel microarray data analysis. i have affymatrix microarray data (GSE14407) data have normal vs cancer sample on same microarray chip.

If you are running things on Windows and are unable to figure out how to use limma by googling etc, maybe you're better off by trying a different tool for interactive analysis of microarray data. No offense, but using a specialized R package for any kind of analysis is probably very hard if you don't have experience (which I'm guessing from your post) ;-)

I didn't test it myself, but maybe you could have a look at Mayday . That should be much easier for you and is absolutely feasible for your kind of analysis.
