Yep, the httpd.conf redirect worked a treat.

I've put all the PPD info into package.xml which is only read by PPM4.
This way their PPD info can be separate from PPD info for PPM3. I think
it was agreed that we'd recommend Perl 126.96.36.1999 or greater for windows.
However, if there are enough requests, I can see about making PPDs for
PPM3 - but I had major problems with Perl 5.6.1 since many dependencies
(or dependencies of Bioperl dependencies) were not available for Perl
