[R] problems with ESS & R ...

I have R 1.9.1, Mac OS X 10.3.5, GNU Emacs 21.2.1 and ESS 5.2.3.
I installed today the ESS by not changing ess-site.el, but creating 
.emacs in $home with the single line:

$ cat ~/.emacs
(load "/usr/local/lib/ess-5.2.3/lisp/ess-site")

If I start now emacs and then R (with M-x R) then I get:

 > options(STERM='iESS', editor='emacsclient')

but using fix() oder edit() doesn't work:

 > fix(pc)
emacsclient: can't find socket; have you started the server?
Error in edit(name, file, editor) : problem with running editor 

Maybe I forgot to do some simple steps??

Hope anybody could help me
