Attempting to update gems results in an error refering to a non-existence drive.
I running Win7. The following is the debug messages:

    Hello,

    Please see if the following article doesn't help you:

    http://help.rubygems.org/discussions/problems/545-cannot-install-ru...

    And also this:

    http://groups.google.com/group/rubyinstaller/browse_thread/thread/1...

    This error is quite common when environment variables are incorrect and a network drive is improperly setup.
