[rt-users] Trouble Installing RT

I had a fair amount of trouble getting the modules to install as well, I
used interactive CPAN, but still a few (DBI, the one it looks like is
troubling you and others) were reluctant.  I went into the cpan
repository and did make/make installs on them (skipping the make test,
cuz it'd fail).  Read the README's before doing that.  But, it worked
for me.

If anyone has better suggestions (I'm sure they are out there), please

When Gladstone was British Prime Minister he visited Michael Faraday's
laboratory and asked if some esoteric substance called `Electricity'
would ever have practical significance.
"One day, sir, you will tax it," was the answer.
