Thanks for the quick response, I tried adding the above line (modified
for this system) to my ~/.emacs file but it still seemed to pick the
wrong R script (/usr/bin/R which did the fancy things distributing to
nodes on the grid).

The lines I have for ESS in ~/.emacs are...

;;; Loads the ESS package for editing statistical files
(load "~/emacs/ess-5.3.3/lisp/ess-site")
(setq-default inferior-R-program-name "/usr/bin/Rinteractive")
 (and just to check I'm sane..

$ which Rinteractive

However, you set me on the right track and I uncommented and  modified
the same line in ~/emacs/ess-5.3.3/lisp/ess-site.el to reflect
Rinteractive and can now run R under ESS again.

Thanks for the help,
