I'm using facebox for my Rails apps. Very simple plug in.

There is a million, but I'd recommend using a jQuery one because of the popularity of jQuery, it's plugins and the amount of sites that use it/tutorials - it's inevitable to cross paths or want to use other jQuery plugins later on. I like fancybox the most.

Are you trying to customize LightBox or what isn't working? I agree with the other posters ...  I have been shopping around for a while for an overlay tool/plugin and there are many more options for the jQuery framework. I have also used several with both the Prototype and jQuery ... they usually aren't that complicated, just follow the tutorials.

Some good ones:
