I am newby user of RubyGems and am currently trying to use the archive-tar-minitar gem. I have it installed and believe that my paths are correctly set, however, when I include require 'archive/tar/minitar' in my file I get the following error:

./tar.rb:4:in 'require': no such file to load -- archive/tar/minitar (LoadError) from ./tar.rb:4

    You did require 'rubygems' first, right?
