SPUG: DBD::CSV Problems

I feel a brief history is in order before I get to
I retired in 2002 and have not cut a line of production
code since July of that year. A former co-worker asked me
to crunch some data for the small business he started. Being
out of the workforce for a while, I'm definitely not
up to date with perl so I may ask stupid questions.
That being said, here is my problem.
I have some .csv files I need to read, parse and
write. I planned on using DBI/DBD. I have been
unable to open the csv files with a connect.
I have a lot of experience with DBD::Oracle
but am at an empass with DBD::CSV. I'm not looking
forward to writing code to parse a csv file.
Here is where I'm at...
OS RH 9.2
DBI/DBD drivers installed within the last month
SQL::Statement is installed
Text::CSV_XS is installed
Here is the connect sub...
my $dbh = DBI->connect( "DBI:CSV:f_dir=/home/jc/data/yahoo.csv" ) ;
return ( $DBI::err ? 0 : $dbh ) ;
and the error message
No such directory '/home/jc/data/yahoo.csv' at ./dbtest.pl line 27
The directory and the file definitely exist.
Any help would be greatly apprecieated.
