Well, under Win32, I just grab the source from CPAN, and save it under the appropriate name under the particular directory in the \perl\lib directory tree. I don't use the CPAN shell in other words. I for one got File::Tail to work but I decided to hack up my own script because it didn't suit my needs exactly.
Update I guess the question would be, should I use the CPAN shell under Win32? I use it on Linux all the time. Am I missing something by manually installing modules like I've been doing?
