You probably need to completely delete the /usr/lib/perl5 directory tree 
to get rid of all the perl files, then reinstall the perl rpm from the 
distribution.  Have the rpm ready; you never know what isn't going to work 
right without perl around.  :)  

Did you need 5.005 for something specific that it was installed?  Red Hat 
did 5.00503 for 6.2, everything since then has been 5.6+.
