If you are trying to run this off a web server, you need to make sure the script is setup the way the server needs it. That means you may need to place the script in a special directory, usually called cgi-bin. It also means you need to have the right file extension. Usually .pl or .cgi
Your account on your web server may not actually allow you to use cgi's. You should check with the server administrator to get the information I talked about above.

If you are trying to run this script off a desktop PC, you need to have a perl interpreter, like activestate's Perl for Win32. WWW.activestate.com
