here's a page i ran across the other day that you should find helpful in making your decision: www.hyperseek.com/windows.html
it's a general discussion about what the problems are when installing Perl CGI programs on an NT system. the guys who wrote it suggest keeping your distance from IIS if you can help it...
maybe you could try to install the Windows version of Apache instead. it works well for Win98, i don't know about NT.
