Thanks to A.J. Rossini, Rich Heiberger, and Paul Johnson for the help!

I've gotten ESS[R] running and things seem to work ok in Inferior
mode. I can run one R command at a time ala Rgui (except for help
commands e.g., ?plot). However, if I try to load a file of R commands
and run several lines Emacs seems to lock up. I'm still learning Emacs
and trying to understand how ESS works so take this with a grain of

I realize there are reports of problems with rterm in R 1.1.1, but I
can run

rterm -save <test.R > test.out

from the command prompt fine, if that makes any difference.
