    This produced quite a mouthful of text.
    I'm stuck on the error messages (in red) and wondering if I messed something up. Any advice would be very appreciated. Thank you.

    Those aren't errors, they're warnings. It installed. The warnings seem mostly caused by not having the proper permissions setup on your folders. Also, you'll probably want to prepend the commands with sudo so it had the proper rights to run the command.
    Code:
    sudo gem install rails
