Thank you for getting back to me. I'm still stuck. And I want to learn 
this, because it wont be the last time this is an issue for me.

Much of the above is Greek to me. I have only used Windows and before 
that DOS. GD is installed in my computer and working. I need it on a server.

1. Are you saying that I should download the tar/GZ and then upload it 
to the server via ftp?

2. Are you saying I should run these programs on the server?
perl Makefile.PL
make test
make install

3. None of these programs mention GD. Is there something automatic about GD?
