I am sure there are plenty of people who are going to gawk at this question, but i am a complete newbie on this. I have been trying to setup a simple site through ruby. I have restful authentication setup and I am trying to add several other features like simple captcha.

a lot of these other script/plugins use the git feature. So here comes the stupid question... How do i add the repositories, or set up ruby to be able to install from git?

install Git.

sudo apt-get install git-core

now you can install via Git. For instance, to install Will Paginate as a Rails Plugin simply

script/plugin install git://github.com/mislav/will_paginate.git

For info on adding sources to Gem check out the manual. http://docs.rubygems.org/read/book/1
