This is a guess, but I think you rather want to install the extension of PHP
above the CGI-version. Without any specific experience about modules etc,
and none about PHP, I installed PHP 4.2.1 for Windows XP on Apache 2.0.36
_very_ easy; just followed the instructions. So, if it isn't so that you
must have the CGI-version, I would recommend you to use the extension module
instead, as it is much better/faster.

As I understood it, you had already got Perl working fine, and you do not
need it in any special way for PHP, so have it like it is (or was, if you
made changes).
