I've tried installing ruby on rails a number of times without success. I managed to install ruby easily, it's the rails part I'm having trouble with.

I'm on a Windows XP Pro OS.

RubyGems hangs while updating the source index.

I have a problem with RubyGems. It doesn’t matter what I try to install with, it freezez.

Particulary I tried to execute: gem install rails—include-dependencies

but the command freezez at the following message:

"Updating Gem source index for: http://gems.rubyforge.org"

Any help?
