in reply to Installing CGI

You need a web server to run the scripts. I use Xitami to run scripts during developement, it is free and simple. You can find more stuff at winfiles
When you have installed the webserver, place the files in the cgi-bin folder or whatever folder the documentation says. Run the server (If it is not already running) and call the scripts with http://Your-computer-name/cgi-bin/your-script-name.pl

With Xitami you don't need any configuration, it has a browser-based admin tool and I think it is good for developement purposes, but I woudn't trust it as a production server. (You might have to change the .pl file endings to .cgi though)

good luck! : )
