Hi Vicky,

Annoyingly, ActiveState doesn't include DB_file with their build of
Perl anymore, even though it is a core perl module.  I believe you can
get it for perl 5.10 via a different repo.  Try this on the command

  ppm rep add trouchelle.com http://trouchelle.com/ppm10/

and then install DB_file with ppm.  Please let us know if that works
so we can update the wiki.

Good luck,
