[ESS] John Fox init.el in mac OS (basic question)

Dear members of ESS list,

I am trying to use the configurations from John Fox, from his init.el file.

The issue is that I have a macintosh (MacBook Pro with 10.4.10 installed).
Xemacs is running. R is also running. Ess loads correctly.

When the xemacs opens I see "R fontifying", which goes for a long time 
and at the end I get the error message:
(1) (initialization/error) An error has occurred while loading 

Timeout waiting for prompt. Check inferior-ess-prompt or ess-loop-timeout.

If anyone has any advice, thank you very much.
I have tried to check the ESS mailing list, but couldn't find anything 
about it.

Tiago M
