Mark,

I just went through this recently on Vista 32 bit (although I set up
emacs and slime a while back).  Here is how I remember doing it:

(1) I installed emacs into its own directory on the C: drive, in my
case C:\emacs-22.2-bin-i386

(2) I installed slime into a subdirectory of the emacs folder:
C:\emacs-22.2-bin-i386\emacs-22.2\site-lisp\slime

(3) I installed CCL into its own directory on the C: drive, in my case C:\ccl

(4) I edited my .emacs file to add:

(setq inferior-lisp-program "c:/ccl/wx86cl.exe")
(add-to-list 'load-path "C:/emacs-22.2-bin-i386/emacs-22.2/site-lisp/slime/")
(require 'slime)
(slime-setup)

[To edit my .emacs file, I launched emacs and did c-x, f then entered
"~/.emacs" without the quotes. That put me into the correct location.
Also note that you have to use a "/" and not a "\" in emacs when
typing file paths.]


Once that is set up, you should be able to M-x slime, and it should work.

-John
