You may want to start someplace such as 
http://www.unix.org.ua/orelly/perl/prog3/ch22_02.htm for a how-to on 
installing the proper module.  It's telling you that you need to install 
Net::LDAP.  Check your distro's rpm directory and make sure that they 
didn't package a perl-LDAP for you already.  I know Fedora did, in Core2 
some others may have as well.
