Any good Rails 2.0 books for beginners?

The books I have access to are for Rails 1.2. I'm running into brick wall after brick wall getting the opening chapter examples in these books to work with Rails 2.0.2, missing plug-ins, missing template files, scaffolding doesn't work, etc.
Instead of installing the Rails 1.2 gem, I'd like to bite the bullet and learn Rails 2.0. Unfortunately, the Rails Way book apparently is for established Rails coders, of which I am not one.
I'd call myself reasonably familiar with Java, PHP, etc. and don't need to learn programming, I just need to get up to speed quickly on how Rails does its magic without poring through oblique Google search results on how to cobble a 2.0 app together from a 1.2 app.
Are there other Rails 2.0 books or online documentation out now, which have working code examples of a small web application, from start to finish?
