HI, i think you need to add the path to the emacs variable exec-path
can you try this:

(add-to-list 'exec-path "/home/david/lib/R-2.10.0/bin")

before requiring ess.

(load-path is for finding .el files, whereas exec-path is for programs.)

Please let us know if it works,  in which case I can then document it in
the info pages for ESS.

Thanks, Stephen
