Okay...here's what I've got:

Linux Server running:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3
Apache 1.3.33

It's a dedicated server that I have root access to.

I want to install RoR and access the things I program directly from a
URL (ie http://www.example.com/something/another) without having to
attach the port (like :3000) to it. I've been told I need to install it
for Apache but can't really figure out what all needs to be done to do

Any direction would be great.
