If the R bin folder is on your path (something like c:\Program 
Files\R\rw1091\bin), and ess is loaded, then it should be as simple as 
M-x R (I typically type ESC x R <enter>, because "Alt" is in an awkward 
place on my laptop).  If that doesn't work, then ess probably isn't 
being loaded.  Check the docs for recommended settings on the 
.xemacs\init.el file.
