Help getting perl to run in IIS...

I need to get perl scripts up and running on my Intranet site. The site
computer is a WinNT 4.0 machine running a IIS. I have the Win32 port of
perl installed and associated with the .pl in the OS. The scripts run
from the command prompt, but when calling them up from a HTML page, I
get the following error:

HTTP/1.0 500 Server Error (The specified module could not be found. )

Since the site is behind a firewall, you can't directly troubleshoot for
me...but I will try and include as much information as I can...

The HTML for direction to the script is:

<form action="/cgi-bin/" method=POST>

I have Matt's script in the cgi-bin
(c:\inetpub\wwwroot\cgi-bin\) and the 'bin' has execute rights.

Is there an association that I have to make via the server? I am new
in operation a server, and writing/modifying perl scripts, but am versed
in HTML writing. Is there something special in modifying the first line
of a perl script to run on a IIS server? On my machine perl is located
at c:\inetpub\perl\bin\ so the top line of the script is changed to
#!/inetpub/perl/bin/perl right?

Hopefully this is a easy question and not a nagging one...

Thanks for any and all help regarding this...
