Quick and Simple: How do I get rid of the subdir for my railsapp? (Making it root dir)

Ok, I created my rails application called "word". It consists of:

controllers/application.rb (empty, whatever the default is)
controllers/word.rb (my project)

views/index.rhtml (my view)

If I go to localhost:3000, I see the "welcome to rails" page.
If I go to localhost:3000/word/, I get my application.

How do I make my application the root by itself, without the /word/ at
the end?

I think this is a fairly straightforward issue where I'm overlooking
something, but it is causing me a lot of problems when deploying the
application on a web server (same problem, larger scale).

Thanks!

Did you read that "welcome to rails" page? Last paragraph should tell
you how to do this.

You know it's funny. I've been searching for over a day, and come up
with nothing. I post this question and 20 minutes later here we are:

http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/HowtoConfigureTheDefaultPageForYourRailsApp

The page I got only said:

Getting started
Here's how to get rolling:

   1.
      Create your databases and edit config/database.yml

      Rails needs to know your login and password.
   2.
      Use script/generate to create your models and controllers

      To see all available options, run it without parameters.
   3.
      Set up a default route and remove or rename this file

      Routes are setup in config/routes.rb.

Which didn't sound obvious at the time, but that's mostly because I'm
new to rails (could you tell?).

Routes. It's a big part of Rails. It's more than just setting the
default page for your app.
