Please explain what this sentence means (copied from http://docs.rubygems.org/read/chapter/3)
"Make sure you add the GEM_HOME setup to your profile, so that

I am on Windows 7. What is "GEM_HOME setup" and how do I add it
to my profile?

GEM_HOME is an environment variable that tells RubyGems where to
find or install gems from.
You can see the default value of GEM_HOME by doing gem
env in a command prompt and see the value of it around

You can learn about setting environment variables using GUI or
Please note that setting that environment variable is not
required unless you installed Ruby using Administrative
privileges and normally you don't have them.
Hope this helps.
