[Instantrails-users] Instarails with existing Ruby installation

No.  It looks like this:
C:\App>rails trunk
'rails' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Which is why I was talking about the path.  Our group policy is to
checkout at the root level and to delete expired branches, which is why
I was trying to create trunk under App instead of App under C:\.

Your 'rails trunk' command generated a Rails skeleton app named 'trunk'.
you're planning to use Subversion (SVN) for your source code control
that's not how it works.  Setup your SVN repository, generate your Rails
per the tutorial, then import the app into your repository's trunk.
I'll be 
doing a tutorial on SVN for the cookbook app in the next couple of
but, for now, you might want to check out the one at:
