Problem with gem 1.3.2 upgrade

trying to update from gem 1.3.1 to 1.3.2. downloaded 1.3.2 to harddrive.
then entered “gem install 1.2.3” at the command line. I get the
following error

ERROR: could not find gem 1.3.2 locally or in a repository

where do I need to put the gem 1.3.2 file so that it can be found?

Try gem update --system

This will update to the latest version of ruby gems.

Any ideas?
