Mike, Thanks for the response!

However, I am still not sure why I am getting this error.  It looks like 
GDBM.pm is trying to create the database?  Or is it just trying to modify an 
existing database?

I know it is not a disk space issue.  So it must be permissions.

As everything else installed correctly, I am confused as to why this has 

Can you tell me where GDBM.pm needs to write to?  What is/are the default 
databases for barry that Interchange wants to work with?  If I know this, 
perhaps I can manually change the permissions and check the databases.

Similarly, how would I go about checking to see if there was a GDBM/Perl 
build problem?

Thanks for such an incredible shopping cart system!

Best regards,
