perl -MCPAN -e shell, resetting or changing mirror urls

When I set up the CPAN using perl -MCPAN -e shell I only chose one url, and the url doesn't seem to be functioning. How can I either

a. edit add to the list (and where can I get a list of mirrors)
b. just reset the whole configuration?

Thanks, Mark

Just remove your configuration from ~/.cpan/

The next time you run it you will be asked for the config again.

You can reconfigure anytime by typing

o conf init

in cpan
