  (setq scheme-program-name "mzscheme")

and then you can simply M-x run-scheme.  You should also add:

  (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.ss$" . scheme-mode))

Also, if you use CL too, then ILisp should support both (I haven't
tried it in a while though).

You're not alone in this club, but one warning: don't say that on

          ((lambda (x) (x x)) (lambda (x) (x x)))          Eli Barzilay:
