    If you are getting errors its probably a permissions thing.

    No, I put that there because of the permission error.

    THE GUESTBOOK IS DOWN PLESE TRY LATER.
    I followed these instructions but did not understand the first part

    This guestbook offers you many options.
    You can specify required fields, send e-mail notification,
    specify entries per page, censor bad words and delete guestbook entries.
    All guestbook pages can be accessed via jump menu.

    1.Open guestbook.pl with a text editor.
    Change the url in line one, to the Perl program at your server.
    Usually it is: - /usr/bin/perl or /usr/local/bin/perl for Unix.
    - C:/Perl/Perl.exe for Windows (use slash "/")
    Set the correct paths and required urls. Did not understand - I put http://lynchknot.com/cgi-bin/guestbook.p because the first line reads like this:
    # url of script
    $cgiurl = "http://lynchknot.com/cgi-bin/guestbook.pl";


    2.Upload guestbook.pl in ASCII-mode to your cgi-bin directory
    and change mode it to 755 (-rwxr-xr-x).

    3.Open addentry..html with a text editor.
    Change the line
    <form method="post" action="/cgi-bin/guestbook.pl">
    to the correct location of guestbook.pl

    Did you do this:

    Change the url in line one, to the Perl program at your server.
    Usually it is: - /usr/bin/perl or /usr/local/bin/perl for Unix.
    - C:/Perl/Perl.exe for Windows (use slash "/")
