I'm just getting started with Rails and I have a problem getting a
simple "hello world" app working.

I have Ruby 1.8.2 installed.  I then installed RubyGems and from there
Rails.   Everything good, so far.  I created an application and the
basic main page works just fine.  Following the chapter 4 of the Dave
Thomas book, I create a "say" controller and add a "hello" method to
it.  When I then try to access this new method via my browers the
WeBrick server spits out a long stream of error messages.  For brevity's
sake, I'm including only the first few because I feel sure that this is
probably a common newbie oversight of some sort.

Any help?
Thanks,

After some digging, I found my own problem.  It turned out that I did
not have IRB installed.
