R cannot be resolved!

I am new to Android. I have opened the notepad tutorial and it worked
very fine with Eclipse 3.4.0 under Windows XP but when I tried to open
the Snake sample, it gave me an error " R cannot be resolved" I have
noticed that there is no R.java in the project. What is I did wrong?
Any help will be appreciated.
Many thanks

I can't speak specifically for Eclipse.

However, R.java is generated as part of the Android project build process.
If you haven't compiled the project yet, R.java probably does not exist.
Try building it, following the instructions on the Android Web site, and
see if that clears up your problem:

 Hi Mark,
Thank you for your nice replay. I did as you said and I have
successfully built all the samples except 2 samples "Snake" and
"LunarLander". I don't know why. What is the difference between those
2 and the others?
Thank you

1. Did you get specific build-time or run-time errors for them? If so, 
what are the error messages?

2. Have you tried building them outside of Eclipse?

Again, I'm not an Eclipse guy, so I will not be much help with 
Eclipse-specific issues.
