i follow the instructions on

http://rubyonrails.org/download

to install RoR, and on all 3 machines, they all cannot go past the front
page:

for example, when i click on

About your application’s environment

i get:   (is it sqlite3 needed?  is it mentioned in the set up page?)
thanks.

It is if you want to use a sqlite3 database (in which case you need
the sqlite3-ruby gem and sqlite3 itself)

what are the options?  mysql or sqlite3?  i just wonder why there is no
mentioning of it on http://rubyonrails.org/download  to talk about
having RoR run correctly? thanks.

mysql, sqlite3, sqlite or postgresql are common options, and there are
adapters for other one's too. I suppose it is assumed that it is
obvious that you will need the ruby bindings for the database you
pick.
