AT 12:23 AM on Monday morning,
it looks the ESS install has

Richard's #1 below SOLVED EVERYTHING
Because I FINALLY get ESS-none
On the bottom of my emacs window.

Can anyone recommend a good
intro document for using

everyone must be quite sick
of my emails so
I promise I won't
Send out any more emails
On questions with the
use of ESS if someone
can suggest a decent document.

Also, I will modify
Jasper's document slightly
and send it to the list
For future "dummies" like
Myself but it won't need much

1. The .emacs file you sent can't work because you are using backslashes
the path name and you are referencing an non-existent directory

(load "C:\Program

Inside emacs you must use forward slashes and you must use the correct
directory name "site-lisp".
(load "C:/progra~1/emacs-21.3/site-lisp/ess-5.2.11/lisp/ess-site.el")

2. Have you looked at the instructions on installing ESS with emacs that
are included with ESS?  They are in 
Open it in Internet Explorer and search C-F for
   1.9 Microsoft Windows installation
