form question

Dears
I new to the ruby world and I would like to create forms and send this
info to the db. when I use the scaffold method I can't seem to connect
to my database. when I hit select show I only get the 2 links for edit
and safe.
I already made this form
<h1> Een nieuw lid toevoegen</h1>
<%= error_messages_for 'Speler' %>
<% form_for :Speler do |f| %>
<p>
name:<br />
<%= f.text_field :naam %>
</p>
<p>
achternaam:<br />
<%= f.text_field :achternaam %>
</p>
<p>
score:<br />
<%= f.text_field :score %>
</p>
<p>
ploeg:<br />
<%= f.text_field :ploeg %>
</p>
<p>
<%= submit_tag %>
</p>
<% end %>
but I have no clue what so ever what I have to do to insert the data
into my data base.
is there a biginner tutorial somewhere where I could figure out how I
can learn to link the form to my database with a notice when a given
item is not entered
thanks very much for your help

Is there a big difference between the scaffold in the previous versions
of ruby and rails, I'm using ruby 1.86 en rails 2.0.2 I use netbeans to
build my website I know in the previous version the scaffold needed the
extra info like create delete show ect while the new one parently has
enough with the Model name.
but when you try to select anything like edit or show it does only show
the link edit and save?

thanks for the help
