Never mind that: gotit. Now this:

    $ perl -MCPAN -e shell;

    Your configuration suggests "/var/perl/cpan" as your CPAN.pm working
directory. I could not create this directory due to this error: mkdir
/var/perl: Permission denied at /opt/perl/perl-5.8.0/lib/5.8.0/CPAN.pm line

    Please make sure the directory exists and is writable.

I've sent an install request for FindBin::libs to the sysadmin.

Does this look right as a line in .bashrc:

    export CVSROOT=/home/petemar1/.cvsroot/


When I do this:

    $ cvs co scrapebay;

I get a nasty error:

    cvs checkout: cannot find module `scrapebay' - ignored
