Create a work folder and a Rails project in Windows

I am new to RoR. I am running Windows. I heard Mac automatically
generates "Sites" folder for you. But how do you create a work folder
called "Sites" in Window Terminal?

I followed a tutorial that runs on Mac, the author did the following:

1) rails my_app (create a rails app named my_app)
2) mate my_app (open TextMate)
3) cd my_app (change dir into my_app folder)
4) script/server (run server script) -- booting Webrick
.......

I don't have TextMate installed. I have SciTe. Can I type "SciTe
ma_app" instead??

Please help. Many thanks!

There is a folder in hour home directory on a mac called Sites. It's
not magic though, it's just a folder (and apache is setup to serve
static files from it - ie not much good for rails)

I followed a tutorial that runs on Mac, the author did the following:

1) rails my_app (create a rails app named my_app)
2) mate my_app (open TextMate)
3) cd my_app (change dir into my_app folder)

No idea, why don't you try? All mate my_app does is open that folder
in textmate. You could just have easily have opened textmate and then
picked 'Open' from the File menu (and I'm sure you can do that with
SciTe). Either way it's not an essential part of the workflow in any
way.
