Installing ruby-debug

I would appreciate help on how to install this gem.

Here's the output I got (rails -v=Rails 2.3.5, Windows XP, ruby console)
C:\InstantRails\rails_apps\shovell-debug-02>gem install ruby-debug
Building native extensions.  This could take a while...
ERROR:  Error installing ruby-debug:
