I've put together a little howto
on getting Ruby on Rails
going on Slackware 10.1 (and Slamd64). It is very basic, but it gets the necessary steps on 1 page. Any suggestions or corrections etc are very welcome.
I hope it is useful to someone out there.
From the Ruby on Rails website :
Rails is a full-stack, open-source web framework in Ruby for writing real-world applications with joy and less code than most frameworks spend doing XML sit-ups
