many thanks for the advice, I installed polymode and put the following 
in my .emacs:

(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.md" . poly-markdown-mode))
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.Snw" . poly-noweb+r-mode))
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.Rnw" . poly-noweb+r-mode))
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.Rmd" . poly-markdown+r-mode))

I suppose that's all that was needed to set it up because it seems to 
load properly when I open an ".Rnw" file and things seem to be running 
smoothly so far.
