Hi list; I am a newbie and first time poster, so please bear with me.

I am using mrtg-rrd.cgi (or at least attempting to) and am encountering
problems.  When I try to call up the HTML with
http://servername/cgi-bin/mrtg-rrd.cgi/target.html/, it returns a "Server
error!" and my apache error log displays the following:

[Text omitted...]
[Mon Sep 08 13:44:32 2003] [error] [client x.x.x.x] Premature end of script
headers: mrtg-rrd.cgi
Can't locate CGI.pm in @INC (@INC contains:

failed--compilation aborted at /var/www/cgi-bin/mrtg-rrd.cgi line 1028.

I have 2 .CFG files in /etc/mrtg/:

WorkDir: /home/mrtg/public_html/
IconDir: /home/mrtg/public_html/
Refresh: 300
Include: /etc/mrtg/target.cfg
Options[_]: bits,growright
RunAsDaemon: Yes
PathAdd: /usr/local/rrdtool-1.0.45/bin/
LibAdd: /usr/local/rrdtool-1.0.45/lib/perl/
LogFormat: rrdtool


My mrtg-rrd.cgi file includes BEGIN { @config_files = qw(/etc/mrtg.cfg); }

Then I run /usr/local/mrtg-2/bin/mrtg /etc/mrtg/mrtg.cfg and it returns
"Daemonizing MRTG..."  It looks like it runs and my WorkDir contains the
.RRD's for my target.

Can anyone offer a suggestion for a resolution to my problem?

Thanks much,
