I'd be very grateful for some help. I am a newbie working through Agile
Web Development with Rails 2nd edition.
As far as I know I have all the compatible versions of things installed
including RadRails 0.7.2. I have got up to page 81 and everything works
I am now trying migrate/003_add_test_data.rb and have copied the code

Product.create(:title => 'Pragmatic Unit Testing (C#)',
Pragmatic programmers use feedback to drive their development
personal processes. The most valuable feedback you can get while
coding comes from unit testing.
Without good tests in place, coding can become a frustrating
"whack-a-mole." That's the carnival game where the player
strikes at a
mechanical mole; it retreats and another mole pops up on the
