There might be a problem with spaces in filenames.
My setup for Windows is:
"i:/Documents and Settings/helmut/lisp/slime-2009-06-06/")
'((ccl ("i:/Documents and Settings/helmut/lisp/ccl/wx86cl.exe"))))
A few more points: the *inferior-lisp* buffer displays the output of the
CCL process and has a REPL. This buffer is in "comint" mode. If you
just need comint mode you can also use M-x run-lisp (or C-u M-x run-lisp
to give the correct filename).
Slime is distinct from comint mode and uses a TCP socket in the
background. Slime only needs the comint buffer at startup and displays
it so that you can see error messages. If you see the *inferior-lisp*
buffer it doesn't necessarily mean that Slime started; it only means
that the CCL process started.
Also, pressing C-c C-c in the comint buffer doesn't seem to work (yet)
on Windows. Slime can use a different mechanism by sending something on
the above mentioned socket which tends to work better.
