Im running windows 98.

I followed the steps provided by Curt to install ruby.

when typing gem install rails --remote
I got bad command or file name.

I then proceeded to change all .cmd file to .bat file with rename *.cmd
*.bat
I updated ruby gems from 8.3 to 8.11.

I then typed gem install rails --remote, and it worked.
I now try rails -v at the command prompt and it says bad command or file
name.

I changed all the new files in ruby/bin to .bat as well, and when I type
rails -v, I get...

C:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rails-1.0.0/bin/../lib/rails_generator/lookup.rb:33:in

`send'
   and a stream of others.

I am at a loss.  Can anyone advise me on installing ruby/rails on
Windows 98

Thnx in advance,

Scott

I don't know if it will work on Win98, but you might want to try Instant
Rails:
