Bugzilla 2.20 installation help required

I am trying to install bugzilla 2.20 on my machine which has Linux 2.6.9 EL installed on it.The machine is configured already as a CVS server. Here is what i did so far,

1.Downloaded the Bugzilla tar ball from sourceforge
2.Tested my machine for the presence of MySQL/PostgreSQL, Perl and Apache.(all tests sucessful!!)
3.ran the script.

The checksetup script reported that a few modules are missing on my machine namely AppConfig,Date::Format,DBI,Template::Toolkit.

I tried downloading the bundle::bugzilla magic module. But it still reports the missing modules. Then i tried downloading and installing the modules seperately.But again the checksetup reports that these modules are missing and tries to connect to the net to download these modules(when i run the perl -MCPAN -e 'install "Appconfig"' command.)
However the ftp access to my ip is disabled for security issues.

I have even tried to download the latest version of Perl (5.8.8). But the problem persists.

I have now run out of ideas and still am unable to install bugzilla. Please tell me what to do.

You can search for these at and download the .tar.gz files individually. Once you have the files, extract them with (for example) tar -zxpvf AppConfig-1.56.tar.gz and cd into the directory. Usually you just run the following:
perl Makefile.PL
make test
make install
Any variations to this are usually in the README or INSTALL file that came with the .tar.gz file. I used this method instead of trying to download the bundle::bugzilla bundle and it works fine.
