Installing f-prot, problem with perl


I'm trying to install f-prot antivirus but it gives me this error:

linux:/home/Lier/MyDownloads # rpm -Uvh fp-linux-ws.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
1:fp-linux-ws ########################################### [100%]
Error: Unable to include perl module: 'HTTP::Request'.
Please install this module and try re-running this script.
(Hint: man CPAN)

Fatal error. Exiting...
error: %post(fp-linux-ws-4.5.4-1) scriptlet failed, exit status 2
linux:/home/Lier/MyDownloads #

I've read in f-prot web-page that i need perl 5.8 and i have installed perl 5.8.5-3, it was installed with my distro.

So, what is the problem????

try man cpan. Basically login as root and run it with the -i option quote:
