Habtm destroy problem

hi,
I’m new to rails, and I have a problem. I have a habtm relationship
between Book and Author models. I’ve got the database, and it almost
works, except that I can’t destroy anything. When I try to destroy a
book or an author, either from the website or console, I get the
following error:

NameError: uninitialized constant Book::Authors
from ./script/…/config/…/config/…/vendor/rails/activerecord/
lib/…/…/activesupport/lib/active_support/dependencies.rb:478:in
const_missing' from (eval):3:indestroy_without_callbacks’

lib/active_record/transactions.rb:121:in transaction' from ./script/../config/../config/../vendor/rails/activerecord/ lib/active_record/transactions.rb:125:indestroy’
from (irb):3

I used scaffolding, I didn’t make any changes except migration files,
and I have no idea what seems to be the problem. Any ideas?

Just a guess, but it looks like it’s looking for a model called
Authors instead of Author,
What are the model class names? What do your habtm declarations look
like?
