Hmm, could be. I take it that /usr/bin/speedy is executable as well as 
/usr/bin/speedy_backend? Try having a look at the permissions.

pc-linux% ls -la /usr/bin/speedy*
-r-xr-xr-x    1 root     root        60690 Jan 17 22:51 /usr/bin/speedy
-r-xr-xr-x    1 root     root       826623 Jan 17 22:51 /usr/bin/speedy_backend

Another thing to check is that you have the perl module for SpeedyCGI. It'll 
generally be in your copy of perl. If you run Redhat, try:

pc-linux% locate Speedy
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0/CGI/SpeedyCGI.pm   <------

As long as you have the speedy backend, you don't need to make any changes to 
your web server config (as stated by Tobi in the README). Just out of 
interest, can you run other CGI scripts without any problems?

How did you install SpeedyCGI? Did you grab the tar.gz and compile from it? 
That's all I did, and it worked fine.
