I suggest that first you work right through some good tutorials such
as railstutorial.org (which is free to use online). Hopefully then
you will have a better idea of the basics of Rails and will be able to
achieve what you want.

Sooo, sounds like the basic scaffold functionality won't work. So
you'll have to take control and write some code of your own.

My own two cents... scaffolding is good for education, and a look at
how Rails is designed to work, but it's just the basics. Never done
Rails before? Scaffold up a model with some attributes, then go look at
that generated code. Figure out how all the pieces and parts work
together. Then start writing your own code.

I use scaffolding for proof of concept all the time, but the scaffolded
code doesn't survive very long at all.

Thanks a lot guys.....will definitely try what you have mentioned
