Hi,

I have downloaded and compiled both ruby and gems. I am now trying to 
install rails with the following command:

sudo gem install rails --include-dependencies

and after a long delay, I get this message:

ERROR:  While executing gem ... (Errno::ETIMEDOUT)
    Connection timed out - connect(2)

I have found references to various rubyforge mirrors, but I have been 
unable to get these to work. How do you set up gems to use a mirror?

What mirrors work the best?

Could I have a bad configuration that is preventing me from connecting 
to the rubyforge site with gem?

Thanks,
Ryan
