Yap. That was my first reaction, but

1. consider the bytes load, gems are lightweight. And you just need ruby.

2. am just naively following rails howto. It says, go gem way, so i go.

*Well*, that's not exactly true. Note that the rails.tar.gz contains
the complete dependecies, i.e. Active* etc. The rails gem only includes
the helper scripts and depends othe the other libraries.

And if you can't unpack the .tar.gz, you can just get the .zip.

If they didn't want you to use it, they wouldn't publish them.
For you, I just hope the rails howto doesn't tell to jump out of the
window. :stuck_out_tongue:
