Kevin,

Save yourself a lot of trouble and use my modified version of GNU Emacs available from

        http://vgoulet.act.ulaval.ca/en/emacs

and also linked from the ESS home page. It comes bundled with ESS and AUCTeX, so the only other thing you will need to install for the purposes you mention is R itself (upgrade while you're at it, you're two versions behind) and a TeX distribution (consider TeX Live or MiKTeX). There is no need for Cygwin with this setup.

Hope this helps
