[mark @ web - ~/svn/perlbal] -> ./perlbal --help
Usage: perlbal [OPTS]
  --help           This usage info
  --version        Print perlbal release version
  --config=[file]  Specify Perlbal config file
                   (default: /etc/perlbal/perlbal.conf)
  --daemon         Daemonize

All of your questions answered.  :)  Look in the conf/ directory for example
configuration files.  Pretty sure most use cases are covered.
