system of of Ruby O. from rubyforge, but I don’t know where it put it
or how to put it in my path (im from windows background) Any help

It looks like that installer installs in /usr/local, with the binaries
in /usr/local/bin. I don’t remember for sure, but I think that should
already be in your path; if not, you should add a line like this to
the end of either .profile or .bashrc in your home directory:

export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH

Mac OS X itself comes with Ruby, although I’m not sure what version
10.4 shipped with, so you may not need to use the one-click installer
at all.

I think that worked. 10.4 has an older ruby version, that’s why I used
one click.

Thanks!
