-TIP. If you're working on Windows, you may find it easier to install "Instant Rails":http://instantrails.rubyforge.org/wiki/wiki.pl. Be aware, though, that Instant Rails releases tend to lag seriously behind the actual Rails version.

If at all possible, we suggest that you install a Linux virtual machine and use that for Rails development, instead of using Windows.
