wtf is wrong with my xinitrc?!

hi evrybody

ive just installed arch 0.7 on a friends pc (just base, 86.0mb) and then xorg and the nvidia driver. last but not least ratpoison as the wm, so i set everything up, also my xinitrc. the line is

exec '/bin/ratpoison'

but when i startx my x server it tells me that it cant find the file ratpoison. what am i doing wrong? or: what the hell is arch doing wrong? tried about half an hour to get this to work but nothingg worked.
