Having problems with RubyGems not resolving dependencies under Debian

So I am trying to do a Ruby on Rails install on a Debian OS. It is proving most difficult. There isn't much help from Google since RubyGems is supposed to resolve dependencies for you, so you can just type "gem install rails" and it will install everything you need. But as it turns out, RubyGems doesn't want do. It keeps getting stuck on either the "rack" or "rake" dependencies saying it needs to either be installed or updated when it is there and has a new enough of a version. I even tried this as root and it didn't work. Wasn't quite sure if I should of posted this question here, in newbies, or in a Ruby forum, but I thought I would give it a shot here. Any help?

You might have versioning conflicts. Ruby 1.83 will not work. It might help if you posted some tangible information, like the exact error messages you're getting. You can try: apt-get update, apt-get upgrade, and then get the latest rails and try installing again.
