Failed to install Ruby on Rails

Greetings,

I am facing problem when installing the rails 2.1.0. i have saved the
gem file in the bin folder, but it always come out with the error saying
that rails require rake 0.8.1. I try to download the rake gem file, but
also failed to install it. i have tried the command " gem install rails
--include-dependencies" but error pop up saying that target machine
refused to activate it.

May i know is there any other way for me to install rails?

Thanks a lot.

Could you copy and paste the exact error please?
