hi,  new to ruby but excited about its possibilities.  specifically,
i'm looking to implement a simple web-based document management system
for my company's intranet with ruby on rails.  i tried hacking an
existing php-based system (http://owl.sourceforge.net) but I can see it
becoming a hulking bohemoth pretty quickly.

anyone have any experience with this particular use of ruby or where a
good starting place would be?  what's the standard (if any) ruby
database implementation in a web context?  i'm not a newbie to
programming but i've very little experience with web programming stuff
like cgi, authentication, cookies and the like.

any insights would be appreciated...
