I had some problems getting Apache and fastcgi (my preferred
configuration) to work on a win2003 Server environment (after installing
ROR / Fastcgi on linux several times successfully). I tried it several

I am looking into developing an app to run in Windows 2000/2003 Server
environment. To install ROR on a server to run an app on Webrick do I

use the ROR windows installer.
Thanks for your input
