Newbie problem with installing rails

Installed Ruby fine, works fine. Windows, 1.8.6
Fire up RubyGems to install rails.
gem install rails
Various success messages to screen.

Open a command line.
rails test
Ton of creates … OK.
cd test
ruby script/server

Get a message saying I’m trying to run 1.3.2 and I’ve got 1.3.1 and I
should run gem update --system

Go to RubyGems and run ‘gem update --system’’
Am told that 1.3.6 has been installed.
Back to command line and repeat
ruby script/server

Whereupon I get these dumped to the screen:

report_activate_error': RubyG em version error: rack(1.0.0 not ~> 1.0.1) (Gem::LoadError) from C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:211:inactivate’

Can someone please explain (you’re talking to a newbie to Rails, but
experienced s/w developer) what happened and how I can fix it.

first Do :
gem update
gem update system
rails test
cd test
ruby script/server

Do these step by step
