Please tell us what the confusion is, and we will fix it.

For windows, the installation is very simple:

1. unzip ESS.  I place it parallel to emacs in the directory

2. Add a single line to your ~/.emacs (for emacs) or ~/.xemacs/init.el file
   (load "c:/emacs/ess-5.2.4/lisp/ess-site.el")

That is the complete installation requirement.
