Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I installed LWP and it still doesn't work.
I can't install HTTP::Date because it says it needs HTTP::Parser.
What are the files that it can't find used for?
These ones/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.3/i486-linux/CORE/perl.h:380:30: sys/types.h: No such file or directory
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.3/i486-linux/CORE/perl.h:411:19: ctype.h: No such file or directory

HTML::Parser is, oddly enough, an HTML parser library, used to extract pertinent information from web pages
install HTML::Parser too. don't worry, once all the web/html stuff is sorted, then cpan will handle most of the other dependencies from there, and it'll all be much simpler
Well, the problems are with installing HTML::Parser...
