Which documentation?  How did you access it?

Points to preview-latex either not being installed (more likely) or
not being activated for XEmacs.

XEmacs distributes only outdated versions of AUCTeX since they don't
have the manpower to make their distribution policies actually work.

It will probably be easiest to use the package manager for
uninstalling the outdated AUCTeX package XEmacs inflicts upon its
users, and instead install the AUCTeX package for XEmacs available on
the download site of AUCTeX.
