Getting Rails and Lighttpd running on Windows
Here are a couple of tutorials on installing Ruby on Rails on a Windows box. First is Kevin Worthington’s [“Ruby on Rails (RoR) with lighttpd on Windows (getting started)”](http://www.kevinworthington.com:8181/?p=102):
> The following mini tutorial will start you on your way to setting up a Ruby on Rails development environment. Please note that I do not know how to program in the Ruby language. I am providing this tutorial due to the number of requests that I have received in the posts related to lighttpd. Please note that this basically gets you up and running and using lighttpd rather than Ruby’s built-in WEBrick web server.
And from the Rails wiki, is [How To Deploy With Lighttpd On Windows](http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/HowToDeployWithLighttpdOnWindows). Where the first tutorial is more on getting everything installed, this one from the wiki goes into a little more detail on configuring Lighttpd on a Windows box.
