Help Archives for a beginner

I am trying to load ESS on my Windows 98  machine (Emacs 20.7) and need more explicit instructions than are presented at the R project home page. I would like to search the Archives of this ESS list, but I don't know where they are. 

How do I access the Archives for this list ?

If anyone has VERY explicit instructions for loading ESS I would appreciate that even more. I can't make heads or tails out of pretty simple stuff. For instance, the help at R home page states
"In the ESS-5.1.x directory, edit the file `Makefile' (only if you want to place the executables in other locations; see LISPDIR and INFODIR) and then type: 
make install"

I don't even know where type this. Emacs doesn't recognize "make" and MS DOS doesn't recognize it either.

Anyway, all advice is welcome.
