[OS X Emacs] Newbie question: Aquamacs autoscroll in second frame or buffer

I began working with Aquamacs only last week and hope that someone can  
point me to a solution for auto-scrolling other frames or buffers. I'm  

What I do is this:

-- open Aquamacs
-- open a file with R syntax in a first frame
-- open a "New Buffer in New Frame", start R in that second frame

Everything works fine except that the second frame with R does not  
autoscroll. In order to see the results of the commands I'm sending  
from the syntax frame, I always have to switch to the R frame, scroll  
down to see the output, then go back again to the syntax frame. This  
is getting pretty tiresome over time.

I tried the Aquamacs settings with Follow-mode and other scrolling  
options, but I cannot get it to work. I'd be extremely grateful if  
someone could point me in the right direction.

To clarify, two frames are not a must-have. I'd be happy with a split  
window view as well -- as long as the output buffer does autoscrolling.

Many thanks,
