I am trying to run ESS with Xemacs 21.4.13 and R 2.0.0 using Professor
John Fox's instructions and init.el file (see

I get the following error message when I start Xemacs:


(1) (initialization/error) An error has occurred while loading
c:\Documents and Settings\kellyh\.xemacs\init.el:

in your initialization file and remove it.  Use the `-debug-init' option

Can anyone help me?  I am new to these packages, so please be explicit
with any advice.
