Thanks for your help!  It ended up being a permissions issue - I think
that the log files didn't have write permissions associated with them.

You also need to make sure the .htaccess file in your public directory
is configured rewrite to dispatch.fcgi. (This just means look for the
spot which says "dispatch.cgi" and replace it with "dispatch.fcgi".
This also assumes you've turned on FastCGI on your Dreamhost Panel.)

...Actuallly, I *think* that when I unpacked my Typo install into DH,
there was no .htaccess file, and I probably copied it over from
another Rails installation.
