Installing ruby for metasploit

i have tried to install metasploit all day but no luck,
my system info:
Centos 6.0 64bit i has cpanel installed on it
i installed ruby via yum
Package ruby- already installed and latest version
but last time i check metasploit need ruby 1.9.1 and up

here's what i get with ruby 1.8.7 and metasploit:
[root@server script]# ./createuser

is this on a Centos VM?  if so I recommend just downloading the Backtrack VM, which has metasploit and many other awesome pen test tools on it.
