I'm assuming that you are using pdflatex to process the latex file(s) produced by Sweave.

Assuming also that you are using latex's \include command (e.g., \include{chap1}, \include{chap2}, etc.) inside your master file, you could add a line like

\includeonly{chap2}

in the preamble to just create a pdf file containing only Chapter 2. The easiest way to do this is probably to edit the master latex file by hand, after having run pdflatex a few times to produce the full document (you need to do this to get all the pagination and cross-referencing information into the .aux, .toc, and other files).

Another way to accomplish 2 is to install Ubuntu's pdftk package then use the pdftk command with the "cat" option to extract whatever pages you want.
