Hello gurus,
I've had a Rails app going strong for a month now running as CGI, and
users are finally complaining of the speed.  So I'm attempting a FastCGI
setup.  I've followed the RHEL instructions for fastcgi from the wiki
and googled for a day and am getting nowhere.  Anybody have a hint? :)

"/var/www/rails/mobmemo_prod/public/dispatch.fcgi": something is
seriously wrong, any chance the socket/named_pipe directory was
removed?, see the FastCgiIpcDir directive

below is when running .dispatch.fcgi from the command line:

[root@prhc-web1 public]# ./dispatch.fcgi
`const_missing': uninitialized constant RailsFCGIHandler (NameError)
        from ./dispatch.fcgi:25
