You need to setup the PATH enviroment variable to point to the cerlbin directory. If you run Win 95/98 edit the autoexec.bat file and find in it the PATH variable. Then simply add the above path to the end of this line.

Yes, you can't find that line. You need to add it yourself.
If your perl.exe is in C:PERLBIN, add this to your autoexec.bat

go to http://www.activestate.com
and download a copy of their Perl port. It
will come with a setup.exe which will take care of the path/registry problems. Also, their Perl bundle includes a utility called PPM (perl package manager). It allows you to easily install modules like CGI, Tk, etc.
