You caught me, I forgot to document one step that I did... since my  
document root for my domain is:


For each of the apps, I had to make a symlink from that apps public  
directory to my document root directory... and then the /images and / 
stylesheets loaded as I needed them to, and works as you would expect  
it to when you deploy changes to current...

--> ln -s /var/www/rails/app1/current/public /var/www/html/app1

I'll update my blog post now! Thanks for catching it.
