Is it possible to install perl on IIS/windows 2003 server? Also is the syntax different at all? And would I have to download different modules to work on IIS from cpan?

There is a free download of a product called activeperl. It works quite well. I've found scripts work perfectly.

It works fine in IIS. I recommend that you map the ".cgi" filename extension to be treated the same as the ".pl" filename extension if you want to name CGI script with the ".cgi" filename extension.
