Newbie's guide to deploying Rails app

Hi everyone,

I'm a newbie when it comes to Apache, Ruby, Rails, and...well....Linux
in general. At the moment I am running OpenSUSE 10.3. I have written a
simple app and would like to deploy it to the OpenSUSE box. There seem
to be oodles of guides and howtos out there, and following them always
get me stumped at some point or other. Unfortunately I am not
knowledgeable enough to get myself out of those pickles.

Is there anyone who has successfully deployed a Rails app to an
OpenSUSE box? If so, is there a guide out there that will point me in
the right direction? Sorry if it sounds vague but I'm getting somewhat

Many thanks,
