I have worked with php for awhile and am taking a look at moving to RoR. I am working my way through Simply Rails 2 and ran into a problem with installing. I am running on Windows XP 32-bit SP3. The Ruby version that was installed is ruby 1.8.6 (2007-09-24 patchlevel 111) [i386-mswin32] and the Rails version is 3.2.5. The Apache version is 1.3.33.

I downloaded InstantRails-2.0-win.zip and followed the instruction to install it. I have the InstantRails console up but when I entered the
Code:
gem update
command, I started seeing errors. Here is the output from the window ( the errors have been highlighted and are in red text):
