Vagrant Up Command Not Supported

I've been trying to setup a ruby development environment, but have had not luck with Vagrant. Following the install video for Mac, the command "vagrant up" gives me the response that this is not the way to install Vagrant?

jasons-imac:~ jasonniebauer$ cd treehouse
jasons-imac:treehouse jasonniebauer$ ls
Vagrantfile projects
jasons-imac:treehouse jasonniebauer$ vagrant up
Thanks for wanting to use Vagrant! Unfortunately, this is not the way
to install Vagrant anymore. We now make installers for the various operating
systems Vagrant supports.

Vagrant is no longer distributed as a RubyGem. Please download the latest
version for your operating system from the URL below. If you still wish
to use the RubyGem version, you can manually install version 1.0.7. Note that
the RubyGem version hasn't been updated in over a year and will no longer
receive any updates.

Prior to installing Vagrant using the installer, make sure you uninstall
all your Vagrant gems, since they sometimes conflict.

anymore, please read this: http://mitchellh.com/abandoning-rubygems

James Barnett I'm back at it again trying to install Vagrant, but the command Treehouse states to use gives me this message.
