Rspec fails at first run -- no such file to load -- spec/rails

Hi,

I newly downloaded rspec, rspec_on_rails and ran the command
ruby script/generate rspec
from the instructions
http://rspec.info/documentation/rails/install.html

I then created the directories in spec:
controllers, fixtures, helpers, models, views

I then created the file spec/models/user_spec.rb as a spec for my model
User.
(Is the convention to name the model’s spec user.rb ?? ) The docs
give both examples on different pages of the wiki.

Anyhow, my problem:
I run rake spec
and get

/usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:in
`gem_original_require’: no such file to load – spec/rails
(MissingSourceFile)

The file /spec/spec_helper.rb contains the line
require ‘spec/rails’

Using the response to a similar q/a I found on the net, I also tried
ruby script/spec spec
Same result.

Pointers would be most appreciated.

Thanks,

Larry

ps. I URGE the powers-that-be to update the installation instructions.
This type of problem dramatically slows down adoption of an otherwise
great projec

What version of rails are you using?
