1093 <para>There is an alternate way of installing the modules using the
1094 <command>cpan</command> shell <command>install</command> command. The
1095 command automatically downloads the source from the CPAN archive, extracts
1096 it, runs the compilation, testing and installation commands mentioned
1097 above, and removes the build source tree. You may still need to install
1098 dependent library packages before running the automated installation
1099 method.</para>
1100
1101 <para>The first time you run <command>cpan</command>, you'll be prompted
1102 to enter some information regarding download locations and methods. This
1103 information is retained in files located in
1104 <filename class='directory'>~/.cpan</filename>. Start the
1105 <command>cpan</command> shell by issuing '<command>cpan</command>' as the
1106 <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user. Any module may now be
1107 installed from the
