<> Thanks but the question was not on how to compute the R^2 but on how to compute Xb, so the Statlist FAQ would not have helped.

If you estimated it with Stata, the command almost surely has a predict option. The predictions of yt are related to the predictions of y by the inverse transformation. So use predict after estimating (2) to compute yt-hats, transform them back to y space. You then have yhats. You did say you wanted to compute an R^2, and this is how to do it. Compute the squared correlation of y and yhat.
