SSLeay & OpenSSL problem with install of IO::Socket::SSL

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

When downloading/installing IO::Socket::SSL off CPAN in perl 5.8.3, it
tries to install Net::SSLeay as well.

Then one gets a message that this ( SSLeay) is no longer supported, and
it says to get OpenSSL from It then asks for the
OpenSSL  install location. However, when I give it the directory
location where OpenSSL is installed on my system it says it can not
find what it is looking for .

 Does anyane know what it is  looking for ( a ftp:// or http:// site or
a 'specific' directory or a 'specific' version what) ??
