It sounds like you didn't cd into the directory that you expanded.

On my system the terminal command would be:

cd ~/Downloads/ruby-75

i did do that, though the directory name was different... ~/Downloads/ruby-1.8.7-p174 – griotspeak Dec 16 '10 at 19:14
well, this was technically the correct answer. i downloaded the incorrect ruby tar – griotspeak Dec 16 '10 at 19:17
