I think I will give up the apache installation after 10 hours on this.

1. run dispatch.cgi from command line, it reports:
       Status: 500 Internal Server Error
   trace it all the way to:
/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rails-0.14.3/lib/dispatcher.rb

   if I comment this line, it will not complain about 500. But it still
does not work:
        ActionController::Routing::Routes.recognize!(request).process(request,
r
esponse).out(output)

2. in .htaccess file, should it be:
       RewriteRule ^(.*)$ dispatch.cgi?$1 [QSA,L]
   or
       RewriteRule ^(.*)$ dispatch.cgi?$1 [QSA,L]
   is the $1 necessary.

All in all, I hate the 500 error....

Can you give us the complete trace?

Where is the difference?

Are you trying to use FCGI?
What is your OS?
