Lina, Stas is right - Fraley and Raftery's approach is implemented in R in the 'mclust' package. They also have a nice piece in JASA 97 (p. 611-31) explaining the general procedure...

Sense I´m no expert when it comes to clustering, it´s hard for me to be more specific. But in the article model-based cluster analysis is described as "In model-based cluster analysis data are represented by a mixture model in which each component corresponds to a different cluster. Models with varying geomteric properties are obtained through Gaussian compnents with different parameterixations and cross-cluster constraints..." I hope this gives you a clue to what I`m after.
