Generate a Rails Application Failing

In 'Getting Started With Rails' I got as far as 'Generate a Rails Application' and it failed. The create process seems to fail at 'bundle install':

run bundle install /usr/local/rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.3-p392/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.9.1/rubygems.rb:308:in bin_path': can't find gem bundler (>= 0) (Gem::GemNotFoundException) from /usr/local/rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.3-p392/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/railties-3.2.12/lib/rails/generators/app_base.rb:254:inbundle_command' from /usr/local/rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.3-p392/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/railties-3.2.12/lib/rails/generators/app_base.rb:258:in run_bundle' from (eval):1:inrun_bundle'

The Tresshous tutorial assumes that the railsinstaller program that is used to set things up will work. But when it doesn't work, where do we go from there?
