Hmm... this is strange.

The reason for using virtual hosts in the apache config file is so that you
can ave multiple rails apps running at the same time. Let's try making the
cookbook app be the one and only (i.e., the default) virtual host.

Edit your apache config file (menu: Configure >> Apache). At the very end of
the file you'll see two virtual host definitions. One for localhost and one
for cookbook. Delete the one for localhost and save the file.

Restart apache and try browing to:

What version of Windows are you using? I should have mentioned that this
only works with Windows 2000 or newer.
