How to capture stderr while using backtick?

Ruby Gurus,

I am using backticks in my ruby script to run DOS
commands, but cannot figure out how to separate the
stdin from stderr.

Please see transcript below for what I am trying to
do:

-------------- begin transcript -------------
C:>dir z
Volume in drive C is LOCAL
Volume Serial Number is AC53-D8CC

Directory of C:\

File Not Found

C:>ruby -ve 'puts dir z
ruby 1.7.2 (2002-06-03) [i386-mswin32]
File Not Found
Volume in drive C is LOCAL
Volume Serial Number is AC53-D8CC

Directory of C:
----------- end transcript -----------------

Notice how, when I use Ruby, the stderr message “File
Not Found” shows up first and then stdin msgs.

How do I separate the two streams?

TIA,
– Shanko

Thanks Park.
I was hoping that there would be some easy way to capture it in a string
variable… oh well !
