Yes, go to command line, and on windows type:

gem install redcloth

on Unix/Linux/OS X type:

sudo gem install redcloth


Then restart your development server, and you should be ready to go.

thanks for that one Robert, it works fine now... just a question

what does the "sudo" part of the command do?

It makes you root (superuser). It should have asked for a password,
except if you were already root.
