The installation instructions? tells

 11. With XEmacs, AUCTeX and preview-latex should now be active by
     default.  With Emacs, activation depends on a working
     `site-start.d' directory or similar setup, since then the startup
     files `auctex.el' and `preview-latex.el' will have been placed
     there.  If this has not been done, you should be able to load the
     startup files manually with
          (load "auctex.el" nil t t)
          (load "preview-latex.el" nil t t)
     in either a site-wide `site-start.el' or your personal startup file
     (usually accessible as `~/.emacs' from within Emacs and
     `~/.xemacs/init.el' from within XEmacs).

     The default configuration of AUCTeX is probably not the best fit
     for Windows systems.  You might want to additionally use
          (require 'tex-mik)
          (require 'tex-fptex)
     in order to get more appropriate values for MikTeX and fpTeX,

     You can always use

          M-x customize-group RET AUCTeX RET

     in order to customize more stuff, or use the `Customize' menu.
