The format is:

   mongrel_rails service::install -N rails_app2 -p 4001

Hi!

Those articles are woefully out of date because they’ve been rolled into “Deploying Rails Applications”. See http://www.pragprog.com/titles/fr_deploy
for details.

Most of those approaches aren’t really recommended anymore… Instead, you should consider Apache 2.2 + mod_proxy_balance, behind IIS if possible. Exact details are in the book, or you can contact me for specific help.
