Getting Ruby on Rails to work on IIS 7.5

I've been tasked with moving a Ruby on Rails website from our ubuntu server that is being retired to a Windows 2008 server running IIS 7.5. Easy right?

So far I haven't even been able to get a basic ruby test page to show up. I used Helicon Zoo to install Ruby on Rails and get a default application set up and a have a website pointing to that app but whenever I try to view I get a 500 server error. I should have all the needed gems installed. What do I have to do to even get the basic test page to show up?
I've gone through a handful of posts and threads on other sites about setting up Rails on IIS but so far none of them have really help. Most of this ruby stuff goes over my head as I'm normally just a PHP/WordPress developer and this is my first exposure to ruby. How do I proceed from here?
