Rolling with Ruby on Rails

Subject: difficulty installing
Author: Challman

Text of message:
I'm behind a corporate firewall and proxy (with authentication). I can't get
the "gem install rails --remote" to establish a connection. I've tried
pointing local but it keeps looking to the 'net. I downloaded and ran
install.rb for actionmailer, actionpack, activerecord and rake. I then tried
"gem install rails" but it failed again. I then did a --force and it
appeared to install:

C:\rails>gem install rails.gem --force
Attempting local installation of 'rails.gem'
Successfully installed rails, version 0.9.5
Installing RDoc documentation for rails-0.9.5...

lib/rails_generator.rb:34:46: Skipping require of dynamic string:

However, I can't execute "rails cookbook". Here is what I get:

C:\rails>rails cookbook
c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:131:in `activate':

        from c:/ruby/bin/rails:18

I've googled and searched and read but I still can't find something that
helps. Any ideas?
