Rolling with Ruby on Rails

I'm behind a corporate firewall and proxy (with authentication). I can't get the "gem install rails --remote" to establish a connection. I've tried pointing local but it keeps looking to the 'net. I downloaded and ran install.rb for actionmailer, actionpack, activerecord and rake. I then tried "gem install rails" but it failed again. I then did a --force and it appeared to install:

C:\rails>gem install rails.gem --force
Attempting local installation of 'rails.gem'
Successfully installed rails, version 0.9.5
Installing RDoc documentation for rails-0.9.5...
WARNING: Generating RDoc on .gem that may not have RDoc.

lib/rails_generator.rb:34:46: Skipping require of dynamic string: "#{path}/#{nam

However, I can't execute "rails cookbook". Here is what I get:

C:\rails>rails cookbook
c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:131:in `activate': (Gem::LoadError)
Could not find RubyGem rake (>= 0.4.15)
from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:150:in `activate'
from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:149:in `each'
from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:149:in `activate'
from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:34:in `require_gem'
from c:/ruby/bin/rails:18

I've googled and searched and read but I still can't find something that helps. Any ideas?
