Hey guys,
I get a very strange behavior when I attempt to install the Rails gem
on my server:

[root@hotaces local]# gem install rails --remote
Attempting remote installation of 'rails'
Successfully installed rails-1.0.0

Normally it asks if I want to include dependencies etc. etc.  This
appears to be instant but then when I try to use the rails command it
is not there.  I also cannot locate rails on the system... hmm...

I setup a symbolic link which fixed my command line issues -- pardon
me for my lack of linux knowledgability.  But rails itself still
isn't acting right on the server:

[root@hotaces httpdocs]# rails demo
/usr/local/bin/rails: line 1: min_release: command not found
/usr/local/bin/rails: line 2: ruby_release: command not found
/usr/local/bin/rails: line 22: syntax error: unexpected end of file

I think it has to do with Rails not installing properly:
[root@hotaces httpdocs]# gem install rails
Attempting local installation of 'rails'
Local gem file not found: rails*.gem
Attempting remote installation of 'rails'
Successfully installed rails-1.0.0

Is there a more specific way I can install rails or reinstall rails?
It doesn't install like this on my local systems.
