[Bioperl-l] Install problem, Mac

I am quite new to perl and have been trying to use Bioperl on my Macbook
Pro, OS X 10.5.8, with perl version 5.8.8.
Other people have posted similar probelms, but none seem to apply to this
case - have been working on it for two full days, now, and am at the end of
my tether!

I have the Bioperl files downloaded, but when I try to run a simple script
(even just use Bio::Perl, which has been suggested as an easy test), I get
this message: "Can't locate Bio/Perl.pm in @INC " followed by a long
directry list.

I've tried changing file location, require module in the script, use library
in the script. I've downloaded the files from different sources, following
instructions on Bioperl wiki and other sources.
I also couldn't get fink working, as it told me there was a root /sw
directory I assumed that was a problem with another program (I couldn't work
out what), could this be affecting Bioperl too?

When following installation for Linux (which was recommended as an
alternative to mac os version) I had problems with the Build module.

While I am reasonably competent using a computer, I am not especially
techie, and have only been programming for a couple of weeks. Noone I know
has had this problem before, and I don't know anyone else that uses Bioperl
on a mac.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
