Thanks a lot, I tried with Cygwin, but this is a lot easier, and work. Why I had to do the hard way?!

I don't know what Windows version of Ruby you're using, but I'm able to successfully use RedCloth using the RubyInstaller from http://rubyinstaller.org/ in combination with the MSys/MinGW DevKit DevKit from http://wiki.github.com/oneclick/rubyinstaller/development-kit
In a nutshell, this combination enables Windows users to compile many of the native C-based extensions that either don't currently offer a mingw32 binary gem or no binary gems period. FYI, we maintain a list of the status of many of the native C-based gems that work or don't work with the above environment at http://wiki.github.com/oneclick/rubyinstaller/gem-list
