Dear ESS list members,

I recently installed ESS along with XEmacs on a Windows 2000 PC, primarily 
for use with R. I had some previous, but not extensive, experience with 
emacs under Unix/Linux.

I was able to get everything working fine, but have the following question, 
which will have particular relevance for my students: What constitutes a 
minimal installation of XEmacs for use with ESS? XEmacs by default installs 
with a very large number of packages -- which are essential?

I'd also be interested in learning which packages are useful for editing 
ascii and latex files.

Any help would be appreciated.
