Hello I've been trying to get this working for a good amount of time and with how simple its supposed to be I am feeling slightly overwhelmed. I am using win XP sp3 and trying to get ruby and rails installed. And am trying to use NetBeans 6.5 as an IDE to write code in. So I have ruby installed -- but everytime I try to install rails gem install rails --include-dependencies it says: http://gems.rubyforge.org/ does not appear to be a repository and if I do gem update it says: ERROR: http://gems.rubyforge.org/ does not appear to be a repository while executing gem ... (Gem::RemoteFetcher::FetchError) Errno::ECONNREFUSED: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it - connect(2) (http://rubyforge.org/yaml) I've found a couple places that have mentioned that the address the command looks at goes down every once and a while and I should check back later. But to make a long story short I am getting pretty frustrated just trying to get everything installed and working in something that pretty much every guide I've read says should be easier than breathing. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong. Any help would greatly appreciated.

I should mention that I've been battling getting this running, part time for a couple of weeks. I uninstalled everything I had earlier today thinking that I had messed something up earlier in setting everything up. So I uninstalled and reinstalled everything and as soon as I had ruby 186-26 installed again I couldn't get rails to install through the winds cmd window. Thanks again.

Well don't know what to say. I restarted my computer again. And the command worked. Weird.

Garrett, have a read of http://guides.rails.info/getting_started_with_rails.html. That should help you a lot.
