It isn't clear what you mean here. Do you mean the package isn't loading? Or do you mean the package is loading but the function NonlinearFit isn't finding a solution?

The routines in the package Statistics`NonlinearFit` are the appropriate routines for non-linear regression problems in version 4 and they do work. But non-linear regression is inherently a difficult problem. There are a variety of issues that could cause the routines to fail. For me to make useful suggestions, you need to supply details of the problem and error messages you are getting.
