   Hello everybody
   we want to customize our ESS for R under windows 2000.  For example we want 
   to set the R directory to d:\R using
   (setq ess-pre-run-hook
            `((lambda () (setq R-directory "D:/R"))))
   This seems not to be the right way (or the right syntax) to define a path 
   under windows and xemacs. Does anyone know the solution?
The more correct way to do this is

(defun my-ess-pre-run-hook ()
  (setq R-directory "D:/R"))

(add-hook 'ess-pre-run-hook 'my-ess-pre-run-hook)

I'm not sure what you're trying to do with R-directory, maybe you want
ess-directory?  Xemacs probably doesn't care about the pathname syntax
but windows pathnames in lisp use escaped backslashes "d:\\R"
