Thanks a lot. I didn't get it working. I put erb.cgi and a .htaccess in 
/var/www/cgi-bin/ as directed in http://www.hiveminds.co.uk/node/3105 
but I can't find out what kind of OS the server is using, and i cannot 
create/edit files or directories in /bin or /usr/bin

at this point, it looks to me like i should give up trying to use ruby 
on that server.

 Thanks again for your help.
