First of all thanks for answering my questions about the other utilities 
that were required.  I did as you suggested and updated several 

I am still have some problems with DXSpider.  Well, I really screwed up. 
The first time I issued the create_sysop.pl was as root.  When I issued 
the command as root, everything seem to work fine but I discovered my 
error, so I tried to recover by deleting the directories "local" and 
"local_cmd" as root and then logged in as sysop and started from the 
appropriate point of the installation, input the commands and remade 
the directories and etc.

After issuing sysop command

 $ ./create_sysop.pl

the following error message is returned:

can't open user file: /spider/data/users.v2 (Permission denied) at
./create_sysop.pl line 104
Can't call method "writeunix" on an undefined value at DXDebug.pm line

I don't have a BBS address for DXVars.pm .  Is it OK to change the 
"g......" address to "" a null address?

Any help here?
