This is for Windows 95 and/or 98.

I didn't try this on WinNT: I simply put "...\emacs-20.7\bin" in my path
(it's probably safer this way, eg for gnuserv).

I don't have "...\rw1022\bin" in my path under WinNT. Thus, I see 2
possible explanations for your problem: (i) this is OS-specific and Win9x
need to have Rterm in the path, or (ii) you didn't specify correctly the
path to Rterm in the ess-site.el file.
