User Authentication

I'm new to Rails and I'm having trouble wrapping my brain around it to
be honest. I want to create a user registration, login system. It
seems this is common are there any tutorials that walk you through
doing this in rails 2.0

Also, I was looking at this gem http://rubyforge.org/projects/salted-login/
- but I don't see how to use it. Where do I find documentation for
this?

check out the railscasts at http://railscasts.com/episodes;archive

search for authentication. there are 3 or 4 tutorials depending on how
you want to implement it.

Thanks. Looks like the restful_authentication plugin is the most
popular.
