Yep. Download last eclipse basic edition. Eclipse Europe
Then download radrails plugin in www.aptana.org

Create a new server in debug mode with your existing rails app and you will have debugging options (breakpoints, watch variables…)

Sorry I told you basic edition. I meant Classic Edition.

I know that google is my friend etc, i was hoping for a recommendation of a particular IDE? Anyone?
  

The beta version of NetBeans 6.0 is free, open source and has great Ruby on Rails support. For Ruby specifc build see http://wiki.netbeans.org/wiki/view/Ruby it supports breakpoint debugging, code completion etc.... For screen shots and examples check out the developers blog at http://blogs.sun.com/tor/

I prefer NetBeans over Eclipse (although Eclipse is certainly good) so make sure you try them both. Either way the IDE environment fro Ruby and specifically Rails is improving in leaps and bounds at a rapid pace.
