I use ESS 5.1.18 with SAS v. 8.0 and Emacs 20.7 under Windows 2000.  These 
really aren't optimizations, but there are two issues.  If you use Norton 
Anti-virus 2000, then you will need to disable it before attempting to submit a 
batch SAS job.  And, to get around the underscore issue, put the following in 
your .emacs after you load ess-site.el:
