Big Time! On a M$ mounted network drive, say P:, install perl from a workstation with the mounted drive. Can be the station sharing the drive, just mount it with the same name you want to use throught out your network. Then add P:\perl\bin to your path and bingo! I mostly had to say things like perl filename.pl, but it worked great. That was on a network of about 170 PCs, 1 NT server, and 20 or so printers. That network connected to a much larger network, connected to the net. Lots of traffic, perl ran like it was local.
