Can't locate default.cfg

I am new to CGI/Perl installation, and I'm wondering if someone can help me decode the following message:
Error Message : Error loading required libraries.
Check that they exist, permissions are set correctly and that they compile.
Reason: Can't locate default.cfg in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/www/cebn/httpd/cgi-bin/db.cgi /usr/local/lib/perl5/i386-freebsd/5.00404 /usr/local/lib/perl5 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/i386-freebsd /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at /usr/www/cebn/httpd/cgi-bin/db.cgi line 51.

Script Location : /usr/www/cebn/httpd/cgi-bin/db.cgi
Perl Version : 5.00404
Setup File : default.cfg

Thanks so much,

I was in your shoes earlier this week but I am glad to be able to report that once you verify a couple of things, the installtion goes smooth.

As noted in the readme file, you have to set 2 variables, one in the db.cgi and the other in default.cfg. Make sure that the scripts are transferred in ascii format (that one got me). Then ensure the permissions are set as per the readme file. If you need help with that, let me know.

Once these have been done, you should be able to run the demo database.

I know it can be frustrating but if you follow those steps you should be fine.
