You must update Ruby first.  You can obtain ruby-1.8.5 for CentOS-4
from the centos-testing repo.  Once you have that then you can
install the latest Gem manager from rubygems.org.  Once Gem is
up-to-date installing Rails should be simple.

However, be advised that some gems do require at least Ruby 1.8.6. 
Rails does not but be aware that other things that you may wish to
use with Rails might choke on 1.8.5
