in thread Need to install module, ftp access only

That was my first thought... mkdir /.cpan: Permission denied at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/CPAN.pm line 1258

    It's trying to install the module somewhere you don't have permission, so you simply need to tell the CPAN module to install it somewhere else. You can either set up an appropriate configuration file, as pc88mxer describes, or else set the PREFIX environment variable to tell the CPAN module where you want it to install the module. See Re^2: Perl module for a sample script.
