Well, looks like you want to use CM with Common Lisp. In that case i strongly
suggest to use quicklisp[1] and the slime version distributed with quicklisp.
Follow the installation instruction on the quicklisp website[2], the eval the following:

 (ql:quickload "quicklisp-slime-helper")

This  should install slime and print some instructions on what to add to your emacs
init file.
