Installing rubygems

I just want to quickly get rubygems and rails working. I installed ruby via yum on a centos server, the newest was 1.8.5. I installed the newest rubygems and realized by ruby version was too old. So then I decided to get an older rubygems 0.8.10, now rubygems is too old! Is there any easy way to get this working without having to compile everything?

    1.8.5 is a really old version of Ruby, and centos is notorious for not staying up to date.

    I recommend installing RVM:
