If you wanna go the COM route:

  require 'win32ole'
  ie = WIN32OLE.new('InternetExplorer.Application')
  ie.visible = true
  ie.navigate('http://ruby-lang.org')

Otherwise, try:
 
  `start iexplore`

(The start dealy is a little bit of magic ... it's not just in the path, 
or at least not on my machine).
