Connecting Ruby on rails with MySQL

I am using Fedora 8 in my system and I have installed ruby, rails and
mysql..Can anyone please explain the steps for connecting Ruby on Rails
with MySQL.

Actually I am getting this problem
$rake db.migrate
(in /home/niket/depot)
rake aborted!
Don't know how to build task 'db.migrate'

(See full trace by running task with --trace)

Make sure you use a color, not a period -> rake db:migrate

Have you setup your database.yml file to point to a Mysql server?

configure database.yml as in this way.. $ vim
/configure/database.yml..but i am unable to access the contents of
database.yml file.
Can u please ezplain the steps how to read the contents of database.yml.
and after that create a database

Dont mind Sir I am new to Linux and its getting me a bit tough to access
the command prompt

Assuming you are in the root of your project in a terminal session

$ nano config/database.yml

Modify this section as necessary
development:
  adapter: mysql
  database: [enter an existing db name]
  username: [login]
  password: [password]
  host: [server or localhost]

Ctrl+o -> Enter to save changes
Ctrl+x -> Quit

try rake db:migrate (the colon is important)

I am unable to get access to that file database.yml even though I tried
as
$ nano configure/database.yml..just a blank editor is opening.
How to know the path where is this file stored

just poke around the filesystem as you would normally (the file is in
a folder called config, not configure (and you would of course need to
have switched to your application's directory first))
