cgiemail 1.6 configuration on a redhat enterprise linux ES ver 3

I am new to linux, we have just moved from a shared hosting environment to a dedicated server. I am obviously trying to move and mirror the web area, however certain things are not working as the servers are not set up exactly the same.

One thing which does not work is cgiemail I have put the tar file on to the linux machine and untarred (if that is the expression) it using ssh (putty) by typing in "tar xvf cgiemail-1.6.tar". As it had not said in the instructions where exactly it should go I had it go into the cgi-bin, so a folder was created called cgiemail-1.6

I then typed the following:

cd cgiemail-1.6

And it went through some different things, assuming it was creating what it needed.

It then says to "Once you have built cgiemail, simply copy the cgiemail and cgiecho binaries into your cgi-bin directory. If you are a non-webmaster installing cgiemail on a server that allows user CGI programs, you will usually need to add the extension .cgi to cgiemail and cgiecho. Contact your webmaster for details."

As my files are already in the cgi-bin, I just put the cgi extension on them.

It then says to goto "domain/cgi-bin/cgiemail/" to test it, when I do this I get up HTTP 404 - Page not found

The server has got virtual sites set up on /www/docs/{virtual sites}
The cgi-bin I was told should be outside of the sites so it was placed /www/docs/cgi-bin

I am unsure if the configuration of this is set up correct. Can anyone help
