if you doing a minor works for this (and i am not sure that i would)

Do R1+R2, but you will probably have to short out the dimmer, while its shorted out, do IR, then do Zs, then reconnect it

you might have difficulty doing Zs through the dimmer, your meter may not pull enough to trigger the triacs in the dimmer, and even if you do, it may give you a high reading - but give it a go!!
