Generate your scaffold with script/generate MyModel.  It will show you
an example of how to do this.

Hi Frank:

I'd use the scaffolding to create the form there way and use that as
a reference to build my own and then delete the scaffolding produced

ok, thanks

I just changed the cookbook edit.rhtml to use text_field and it works
I am using locomotive on mac.

I tried to change an app I coded at work on windows using radrails
and it would not run.

not sure what's going on.

Thanks again for your help.
