You need to install the emacs package "ESS" (= Emacs Speaks Statistics).
(works under both Emacs & XEmacs).
You find it at any CRAN site, under   src/other/ess/.
Installation instructions are included.

There's a mailing list for ESS,  ess-help at stat.math.ethz.ch,
in case you have problems in installation or usage of ESS.
