[Mongrel] Getting Started without Rails

Hi, everyone. I am in the process of learning Ruby. I've concluded that there are couple of quirks with mod_ruby that are limiting me a fair bit, so I'm looking for an alternative. From what I've read, Mongrel is The Answer. However, this has left me with a few questions.
I'm looking for some help getting a non-rails Mongrel started... I can't seem to find the docs I need in my web searching... specifically need something that explains what files Mongrel expects to see where for a non-rails app to work. Everything I have found is written on the premise of Mongrel with Rails (eg, http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/rdoc/index.html).
ext2:/home/www/ruby/cosmogenesis# mongrel_rails start
** Starting Mongrel listening at 0.0.0.0:3000
** Starting Rails with development environment...

from /usr/bin/mongrel_rails:16:in `load'
... its pretty obvious that Mongrel is expecting to find some key files with Important Stuff in them, but I can't seem to find info on where/what. Can someone point me at a how-to or docs that explain what files are needed with what contents?
Thanks in advance for any and all help.
