I assume you want the script to Execute on the server, instead of  
having the server send it to you as text?

Look at ScriptAlias and Options ExecCGI.  Also, make sure that your  
#! paths, associations etc. are set correctly on the server.  I have  
no clue but ActiveState has some good docs on that.
