I am in the process of installing rails using the instructions at


However, downloading and trying to unpack rubygems like this:

curl -O
tar xzvf rubygems-0.9.0.tgz

results in an error:

gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1

I tried downloading the files directly from rubyforge and unpacking it
in the finder, but that creates an error, too.

Please help!
