You are embarking on learning programming. A framework like rails is going
to be a bit overwhelming at first. Try just learning Ruby from the irb
console (this lets you play with the language). You'll need to understand
concepts like flow control, looping, memory and basic concepts around
classes and objects to get started. Once that's done, move on to Rails.

There is going to be a lot to digest. Java Script is not required to use
rails although in Rails 3 it's become pervasive and currently can not be
avoided if you want a modern web UI (Rails 2 it could). That said, learn
Ruby first and also get a firm grasp of HTML forms.

Java Script and in particular AJAX are more difficult to learn so leave
those till last. They are not required to write working apps in rails.

Good Luck!
