in reply to To install a module...
I use different methods depending on how in a hurry I am.
First, I'll try to find a package for my OS flavor. Failing that, if I'm in a hurry I'll use the CPAN shell. But If I have a couple of minutes, I'll whip up a quick package of the module--it's usually fairly easy to do.
I'm not sure where that falls with the options provided, though..
