Hi,

After you execute the rubyxxx.exe, do you see a Ruby folder in the Windows
startup program menu?  If yes, you can just select the 
"RubyWin" sub-menu.  It will bring the editor/execution environment for
you.

To get the Ruby FAQ, you can use the power of Google
(http://www.google.com).  If you just type "Ruby FAQ" there, the first
entry is "www.rubycentral.com/faq/".

To start learning Ruby, you can try the on-line version of the
"Programming Ruby" book by Dave Thomas and Andy Hunt.  Again, if you type
"programming ruby" in Google, the first entry is
"www.rubycentral.com/book/".  If you just can follow the book up to the
"When Trouble Strikes" chapter, you will be in great shape.  Good luck!

Regards,

Bill
