accelorator key for 'ESS - ESS Eval - Eval chunk'

When editing an Sweave (.Rnw) file, 
I can evaluate the current chunk
by clicking on 'ESS - ESS Eval - Eval chunk'.
Is there an accelorator key that I can use to do this?
If not, can I add code to my .xemacs file to create one?

I dont see an accelorator key mentioned in the drop down menu
even though accelorator keys are mentioned for most
other tasks e.g. eval region is shown as 'C-c C-r'.
('Eval thread' also doesnt show an accelorator key.)

As a follow-on issue, 'ESS - ESS Eval - Eval chunk'
asks 'Process to load into: R', something that I would
like to avoid answering each time I enter a new code chunk.
I asked about this before in relation to submitting one
line at a time (C-c C-n) and the code solution suggested 
by Stephen Eglen works fine for C-c C-n.
A similar solution for 'ESS - ESS Eval - Eval chunk'
would be ideal.
