Configuring Perl on fc5

I want to install some perl module:

i typed

perl -MCPAN -e "install Net::Telnet"

the first time, there was a prompt asking whether i wanted to install manually, i accidentally chose "no" and entered

now i want to change it and make it "yes", how do i do it?

coz anytime i type the above command again it does not take me to the prompt again.

Why would you want to install manually? If so, just download the module and install it manually if you want true manual installation..
