for Ruby 1.8.7 and beyond, there is no one-click installer, so how do we
install it?  by unzipping it and setting some path in autoexec.bat or
something like that?   is there a page to explain it?  thanks.

Good question.  Currently you'd need to download the executables and a
few "helper" dll's and put them all in the same folder and run it.

Or download luis' one click installer
http://github.com/oneclick/rubyinstaller/tree/master

then run rake ruby19
then look in the sandbox/ruby_mingw folder for an install.
Cheers!

thanks... how would it be if i use the Ruby 1.8.6's one click installer,
and then unzip Ruby 1.8.7 or Ruby 1.9, and just copy all folder and
files to the c:\ruby folder that was for 1.8.6?  thanks.
