Download and Install webserver fro Win95, which support Perl CGI
like O'Reylly Website Pro(available at http://website.oreilly.com/)
30 day trial available for free, support Perl, M$ ASP, JScript (it's will be enough for you)

Another good weserver for newbies is ILAR's FolkWeb server (i think you can found it on www.ilar.com)

And read articles on Perl and CGI at
http://www.hotwired.com/webmonkey/perl/?tw=perl
and http://www.wdvl.com/Authoring/Scripting/

Also take a good book like Randal Shwartz's "Learning perl" published by ORA
