Installing modulesby Chuma (Acolyte)

Chuma has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
After one week of learning Perl, I basically gave up on Java and all those other messy languages. Now, after five years or so, I still have one slight problem: Installing modules.
Right now, for example, I'm looking at the "Guide to installing Modules" (http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=128077). I've picked the module GD::Simple, because I hear graphics is something that computers can do these days. I've just made a breakthrough and run Makefile.PL successfully, as far as I can tell. I try "make", and it says
I also tried using the CPAN earlier today. It tells me ever so informatively that it "had some problems".
Can you help me getting it to work? Either method? Or some other method? I'm not picky, but it would be nice to be able to use modules. Any modules, really. Thank you in advance.
