on Linux it works out of the box, but on Windows I had similar problems
(Xemacs-21.4.13 and Win2k). First, you must be sure, that .xemacs is in your
home directory. I don't use the standards of win2k and set the
environment variable HOME=D:\

My simple .xemacs/init.el file looks as follows.

;; Auctex
(require 'tex-site)

;; ESS
(require 'ess-site)
(setq-default inferior-R-program-name "F:/src/R-1.8.1/bin/Rterm")

;; Sweave
(defun Rnw-mode ()
   (require 'ess-noweb)
   (if (fboundp 'R-mode)
       (setq noweb-default-code-mode 'R-mode)))

(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.Rnw\\'" . Rnw-mode))
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.Snw\\'" . Rnw-mode))
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.Stex\\'" . tex-mode))
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.Rtex\\'" . tex-mode))

(setq reftex-file-extensions
       '(("Snw" "Rnw" "nw" "tex" ".tex" ".ltx") ("bib" ".bib")))
(setq tex-file-extensions
       '("Snw" "Rnw" "nw" "tex" "Stex" "sty" "cls" "ltx" "texi" "texinfo"))
