I am a newbie to Ruby on Rails and I am trying to learn it.

I am stuck on the 2nd page of the tutorial where I am generating a script or the controller in the command window.
C:\rails> ruby script\generate controller MyTest ruby: No such file or directory script/generate (LoadError)
What are my alternative to generating the script? And if possible, can someone show me a tutorial that isn't so outdated?

Also, this is by no means a definitive source, but the Rails Guides site is pretty good.
