Personally I wouldn't place the the bioperl-live folder in the root
directory; this shouldn't make a difference, but you can try moving it to
the perl directory in a separate folder to see if that helps.  Can't see why
it would make a difference, but it is Windows... Main reason I'll switching
over to Mac OS X!

Make sure that the Bio directory is in the bioperl-live directory,
regardless (i.e. if PERL5LIB is set to
C:\mod_perl\Perl\bioperl\bioperl-live, then there should be a directory like
C:\Perl\bioperl\bioperl-live\Bio).  Otherwise it won't work.

What do you get with this?

perl -MBio::Root::Version -e "print $Bio::Root::Version::VERSION"

If everything is working (PERL5LIB, etc) then it should be 1.5 for CVS
bioperl; otherwise it will either find the old version (1.2.3) or fail
