Configuring RubyMine - Clean Slate?

Very much a newbie here - my apologies in advance.

I feel like I want to "clean" my system of any stragglers that might be getting in the way of having a working IDE.  I am having errors about duplicate gems, strange errors when I follow the 'notebook' video tutorial and try to set up a new scaffold, etc...

Example Error:  You cannot specify the same gem twice with different version requirements. You specified: rails (= 3.0.5) and rails (>= 0)

Potential problems:

1)  Installed Ruby 1.9.2 and now also 1.8.7
2)  Installed Gems 1.6.2
3)  Tried RadRails...then Netbeans (had trouble connecting to DB)
4)  (Re)installed MySQL 5.5.9 (I'm on 64 bit Windows 7 by the way)
5)  Uninstalled RadRails & Netbeans
6)  Installed RubyMine (love it by the way, am going to stick with it)
7)  When creating a new Rails project in RM, had trouble pointing to the right files
     -  I have the SDK selected correctly
     -  But don't know what to point to for the 'Rails Template'

Long story short - I think I have some issues getting this set up correctly.

So - any step-by-step documents to view - troubleshooting tips - ways to "start over" - something?

Thank you again, sorry for being lame.

If you are using RubyInstaller for your Ruby 1.9.2 installation, please be aware that it's not compatible with any gems versions except the bundled one (1.3.7). Updating rubygems via gem update --system is known to break the Ruby installation.

I'd suggest to remove everything Ruby related from your system and install it from scratch without updating rubygems.
