[R] Configuring emacs/ess on Ubuntu

Hi all,

I don't know if this is the proper place to ask this, but I am trying to configure emacs/ess on Ubuntu 8.04 to run the way described for ESS and Xemacs in Windows (John Fox's guide). I installed ess as directed at http://ess.r-project.org/Manual/ . Under Windows I could use Emacs/ess fine (but I am obviously a novice at emacs), but am having trouble doing so in Ubuntu. At present I have loaded ess, and it opens as a buffer when emacs opens. But I can't open an R session with M-x-R, and can only open R if I have a pre-existing .R file. Also, I would like to have emacs, either by default or with a hot key, open up a file in the upper window and R in the lower. Any hints on how I can do this?

Forgive me if these questions are too elementary.
