That works fine, the output was "YAML". From what you said, that's a 
good sign.

Now I'm still getting the same error message that I posted above when I 
run the program.

"Macintosh: ~Xepha$ ruby /users/Xepha/Documents/for-v/numbered_news.rb
/users/Xepha/Documents/for-v/numbered_news.rb:14: uninitialized constant
YAML (NameError)"

And, turns our 1.9.0 is the current one installed and running; she 
didn't know that it was preinstalled on macs. =/ So, yes she is running 
1.9.0 now; YAML is "working" just not in the program that I've written.
