Hi everyone,
I am a guy who can handle ftp/css/html and such.  I am trying to setup a
forum site for some buddies and i really like what i saw out of beast
(  I would like to set up a site that has a
single forum where all the posts go.  It looks like this requires ruby
(which i've heard of but don't know much about).  I have a shared linux
godaddy hosting account (it's free okay i know it sucks, but it's
free!!).  In any event, can Ruby be installed on this? do i need to
convert it to windows?  Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.  If it is
possible to install Ruby, where do i get the files (i've seen this site
for example: and how would i do this with go
daddy? It appears you don't just ftp into the site! :-) Many thanks!

The buddha man!
