RHEL3 comes with very little in the way of perl modules. Getting it to
do anything is a pain. You either have to provide them all yourself or
insist on local admins using CPAN. I've had a whole lot of trouble
getting my perl scripts to run nicely RHEL as well as other Linux boxes
and solaris. Why dont we get Term::ReadKey, Net::LDAP, Net::SSLeay??
