Perhaps you need to make a master file and call the chapter files from it

eg (just copying the relevant section from my master GClimate12.Rnw file)

latex preliminaries + R options + begin

% plots
% Soil 300                     % 15
% proportions                  % 16
% cumsum days                 % 17
closing commands etc
end document

This means that you require 1 setup page rather than individual ones 
and the benefits attached for TOC etc
