RE: Perl/Apache install problems

You need to find all the rpm's for all the dependancies and run the rpm
installer for them.
You may notice a snowball effect where you need one thing but that one thing
needs 2 more...etc.
Stick with it.  It isn't as bad as you think.
The OTHER option that you may be able to do is to reboot the RH 6.1 machine
with RH CD.
Upgrade your system by picking the perl and apache packages.
