Hi Al,

Thank you for all the help so far. One last question, into what
dictionary do I install the deb or does it just know what to do? Will
I land up with both the old and the new versions of Ruby? Will Rails
still know where to look to find the new version of Ruby?

Lastly, are you running Radrails as a stand alone or as an Eclipse
plug-in? Do you have an opinion on this?

Thank you for your patience.
