You are trying to use Apache 2.0 with mod_perl 2.0, things aren't the same, so 
parts of what you read in the book will not apply. You need to head to:
http://perl.apache.org/docs/2.0/user/intro/start_fast.html
and read how to setup mod_perl 2.0, if that's what you want. If you want to 
use mod_perl 1.0, then you need to install it and Apache 1.3.
