Topic: Running memcached on RoR 2.0.5?

hello,

I am new to programming and doing an MSc conversion course at uni. I am trying to use memcached on an application that runs RoR 2.0.5. i understand that only after 2.1 was built-in support included in RoR. Was wondering if anyone knows how i could run memcached with my RoR 2.0.5 aapplication, or even, if this is possible.

Would greatly appreciate any support.
regards,
mike
