Bioperl-db needs to be in your @INC (perl's path for loading perl  
modules) at runtime - so it doesn't matter where you put it so long as  
you have the location in the PERL5LIB environment variable before  
executing a script, or include the location at the top of the script  
via 'use lib c:\path\to\bioperl-db;'. Supposedly, simply installing  
bioperl-db should take care of the problem too.
