The first place I'd look is in the web server logs.  Specifically the 
error_log.  That should tell you what file and path it's trying to 
access when you get the error.  Chances are the path is different from 
where you're script is.

You also should check the permissions of the cgi for the catalog.  
Here's what mine look like:
