Hi Ryan,

Here is the error shown:

server: emboss [source/emboss-explorer]> ./install
installing EMBOSS Explorer perl modules...

I guess that I don't have a root privilege so can't access the
/usr/perl5 directory.
Thus I installed perl 5.8.5 in my folder and then modified the
emboss-explorer "Makefile",
but still failed.

Hope any experienced friends give me some suggestions.   :-)

Thank you!
