    In order of your questions:

    Yes, you need a perl executable (http://www.activestate.com)

    You don't need one, just use Notepad and save as name.cgi or name.pl

    You can use a standard FTP-program and then when the files are on the server (in you cgi-bin) you have to CMOD them to 755

    Hope this is enough information, though I guess not

    Mzzl, Chris
