Honestly, I would check out Locomotive to get you up and running
Locomotive is basically a package that includes all of the software you
(minus the database) to get started with Rails.  Once you have a grasp
the technologies and understand more about Rails, that's when I'd look
building the setup on your system piece by piece.

That depends on what's included with Locomotive I suppose.  I
personally prefer to install RoR using the Hivelogic method.  It works
really well and very easy to do.  Just follow the instructions (copy
paste) basically, and you'll have a great running install and know
exactly what you have.  I hightly recommend building it yourself.  And
by installing Xcode you actually get some very nice tools to boot
(Xcode itself, gcc compiler and lots of other goodies).

Look for the installer on your "installation / restore" disks that
came with your ibook, I have version 2.2.1 and compile it with it and
worked great.

I would recommend also to go with Locomotive first, then when you feel
confident compile all RoR from scratch, also it will take like an hour
or so.
