Ruby 1.9.1 is not compatible with Rails 3.0 Beta 4. Please install Ruby 1.9.2 RC1 instead. Here's a couple of links about it: See the blue note on: says "Ruby 1.9.1 is not usable because it outright segfaults on
Rails 3.0, so if you want to use Rails 3 with 1.9.x jump on 1.9.2 for smooth sailing."

Also this bug on the rails lighthouse bug tracker:

Upgrading Snow Leopard to Rails 3.0 Beta 4
Installing Ruby 1.9.1 on Snow Leopard

I plan to offer two 50 minutes session of step-by-step tutorials that builds on the previous material. After that I will help individuals with getting the app running on their machine and answer any questions
on the covered material.
