Did you incur errors when following the directions? What specifically didn't go smooth?

You mean the .pm files that are part of mobiperl? Those are to be copied to your ebook_tools folder. The .pm files that come with mobiperl are NOT the Perl modules that need to be installed by CPAN.

What command line are you using? (I haven't done this part of the tutorial yet.)
