Question Fprot install problem

I'm trying to install Fprot on Suse 8.2 and get this error message.
I've checked and do have the perl module installed.

Error: Unable to include perl module: 'HTTP::Request'.
Please install this module and try re-running this script.
(Hint: man CPAN)

Where do I go from here?

OK as root, type:
perl -MCPAN -e shell
follow the prompts as needed (if any) and make sure to answer yes to dependencies
When it completes, type install module HTTP::Request
When complete, type "quit" or "exit" to leave shell.
To test:
should download updates if available.
Note: Install will go a lot smoother if you decompress the tarball in the /usr/local directory and use the installer in the fprot directory.
The docs included with the tarball will have more detail.
Good luck.
