Yes!  The code is valid on any suitably modern Perl (5.8.8
recommended, haven't done any testing on 5.10.0 myself but some have?)
and OS (Linux 2.6 minimum, and actually it requires something like
2.6.10 or newer, I forget exactly).

I'd recommend CentOS 5 if you can!

Your problems will mostly be solved by upgrading the system.  (Or at
least we'll have a good common ground to work towards solving them!)

If you can't upgrade, then the Danga tools are probably not the right
tools for you.  :)
