I generally just do the C-c C-l, which takes you to the output buffer
for the job, irrespective of whether that's Sweave output or Latex

This means that I generally have my frame (maximised) split into 3
windows as follows: a tall one on the left (with the .Rnw file), and
on the right two equal sized windows on top of each other (one with R
and one for the output from Latex /Swaeve).

I have something similar set up for Texify (rather than rubber -
texify comes with most Latex distros I think), but you have to have
the image files in the right format. Haven't done this for texify
after using Sweave. Here's what I've got at present (note the little
help info).

(add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook
  (lambda ()
   (add-to-list 'TeX-command-list
     '("TexifyPDF" "texify -b -p %t" TeX-run-command t (latex-mode)
:help "Texify document to pdf (resolves all cross-references, etc.)")
    (add-to-list 'TeX-command-list
      '("Texify" "texify -b %t" TeX-run-command t (latex-mode) :help
"Texify document to dvi (resolves all cross-references, etc.)") t)))

This could be modified to work with Sweave.
