Angry arghh!! cgi-bin help

hi, and thanks for taking the time to read this if you do take the time to read it.
I downloaded a script called mozzy from
what it does is search the ODP
I am installing it on my server and having some problems getting it to work, obviously.
basically what is happening is when I do a search for anything it comes up with a blank page
I have checked all the files made sure the permissions on them are correct the only thing I can think of is that I don't have the server information set up correctly in default.conf

# settings consist of the name, whitespace (tabs or spaces) and the value
# one setting per line.
# lines beginning with # are ignored
# if the same setting is defined twice the later value will be used

# the url to mozzy

# the servers path to mozzy
basedir /var/www/cgi-bin/mozzy

# your name
webmastername James Nutt
# your email address

# the servers path to the templates
templatedir /var/www/cgi-bin/mozzy/templates

# ... and the modules
moduledir /var/www/cgi-bin/mozzy/modules

# ... and the page cache
cachedir /var/www/cgi-bin/mozzy/data/cache

# the servers path to the access log
logfile /var/www/cgi-bin/mozzy/data/access_log

# how many hours pages in the cache expire after
cacheexpire 120

# the relative URL to mozzy. can be left blank if no baseurl are used on your pages
# Should be set the same as baseurl if pages are to be saved offline
# Remember that this will be repeated for each link on the page so try to keep it short

# Set this to the point in the open directory that mozzy should start at
# Leave it as / to include the entire directory
restrict /
# Set this to how many levels deep the setting above goes
# / would mean 0 levels deep
striplevels 0

# The code to include next to really good sites
starcode <B>*</B>

# the default language to use. The .lang file for the language must exist in the same directory as dir.cgi.
lang english

I am extremely new to this and getting very frustrated, if anyone can help out at all that would be amazing... thanks

I haven't really read it all, sorry but i just thought that wouldn't it be better to post this on the mozzy forum (if they have one) or send them an e-mail with all these details, and don't forget to follow the instructions that come with it (i'm sure you have anyway)

Sorry if i haven't helped...


p.s. Welcome to LQ
