HI Steve,
Thank you for your reply.

Ok I have all the spider stuff is in the home/sysop/spider but I have 
made a simbolic link as on the setup web page

I have edited this file with the same stuff that I have running on fedora so they match DXVars.pm 

I could only download two of the cpan program from the links on the web 
page that was



only one of these would compile the other gave a lot of errors and failed
But I would love to have a look at your config files thank you very much
I will go and google  for the other missing files.


Thank you

Best Regards
Danny Moss
