I'm trying to install rubygems, and the rails.
I have installed ruby already.
How do you do this? I can't find any help installing these?
I have downloaded the package and the instruction is:
(extract, then run "ruby setup.rb")
This file isn't executable, I tried in CMD with ruby, or should I use windows Run command?
Why is that always so that installing is the most difficult part, I have had more experiences. For example Java, there is no indication what do I have to download and they change the names, so the installing guides in the books won't match, then MySQL etc.:lol:

If yo have already installed ruby, why don't you install a IDE like radrails ?
you can automatically install all the required gems through radrails itself.

I hear what you're saying loud and clear. Installations almost always give me a hard time.
It's been a while so I've forgotten all the steps I took to get things copacetic, but I think I started with the Wiki http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/getting-started/installation and then Googled for the errors as they popped up until things finally worked.

I did get the things to work now, when I got one thing working, new questions arised, but I got it working.
Why can't it just be like installing a game ?
