38        <h2>System Requirements</h2>
39        <p>
40        To run OpenGuides, you will need a webserver capable of running Perl, and
41        a number of Perl modules as prerequisites, all of which are also available
42        from the CPAN. We recommend installing OpenGuides via <a
43        href="http://search.cpan.org/dist/CPAN/">CPAN.pm</a> or the newer <a
44        href="http://search.cpan.org/dist/CPANPLUS/">CPANPLUS.pm</a>, as these will
45        handle the installation of prerequisites for you. Alternatively, if you run a
46        <a href="http://www.debian.org/" title="Debian GNU/Linux">Debian</a> system,
47        you can install OpenGuides with "apt". Full details and packages are available
48        at the <a href="http://www.larted.org.uk/~dom/debian/openguides/">package home
49        page</a>.
