[Tutor] Trying Ruby...

This message is not as off-topic as it at first appears.

I'm a user of Activestate's ActivePython under Windows/XP.  I want to give
Ruby a spin, just for the heck of it.  I vaguely recall a post a few
months ago, I don't know if it was in this forum, where someone had a
problem in Python, and it turns out it was because a Ruby install messed
with some setting, perhaps in the Windows registry.

I can be more vague upon request.

Anyway, I'd like to install Ruby, but want to make very sure I don't 
impair my Python environment.  Is there anything anyone can point to to 
ensure this?

Any suggestions on the safest Ruby to install would also be appreciated.
