First - is there a section on this forum or another forum for Newbies.
I don't want to interfere with the pros.

I'm trying to load and run the depot_v sample cod from the Rapid book.

Here is my console:

Could not create Makefile due to some reason, probably lack of
necessary libraries and/or headers.  Check the mkmf.log file for more
details.  You may need configuration options.

When I try to run Rails, I get:
C:\Sites\depot_v>rails s

sources
listed in your Gemfile.?[0m
