The original version of this tutorial was written by Curt H. and
published on ONLamp.com. It served as my introduction to both Ruby and
Rails. Unfortunately, I experienced some frustration working through it.
This was due first to the fact that I was using Instant Rails, not
Rails, and second, to the fact that Rails itself has grown since Curt
wrote the article. Despite my frustration, the payoff was huge. Ruby on
[Instant]Rails ROCKS!!! In an effort to help “fuel the fire” I decided,
with his blessing, to update Curt’s article to make it 100%
keystroke-for-keystroke, window-for-window accurate for someone using
this same tutorial for InstantRails Release 1.0 installed on Windows
2000, SP4. All feedback is welcome.
