Hi,
I just bought the "Build Your Own Ruby on Rails Web Applications" by patrick Lenz. I am using windows xp. I followed the given installation instruction. Until page 43 which says you can start your own application by doing the following:

1. cd shovell
2 ruby script/server

However. mine is not working. Please let me know what to do. Here what I did:
