Hi Javier:

Ouch!  That's ancient, circa 2005.  With recent ESS, we only support
GNU Emacs 23 and 24;
see http://ess.r-project.org/Manual/ess.html#Requirements

Of course, you could try an equally ancient version of ESS such as
ESS 5.2.4:

However, as you might have guessed, that is not supported any longer
either.  Good luck!
