There is absolutely NO guarantee for this project to work on your machine. Only use this if you know what you are doing.
Installation is really easy, just run these commands:

I use hitch for pair programming. I also use RVM. After installing the rubies I want, I run.
for x in $(rvm list strings); do rvm use $x@global && gem install hitch; done
And since I want Bundler 1.1 (currently in rc):
for x in $(rvm list strings); do rvm use $x@global && gem uninstall bundler -ax; gem install bundler --pre; done
