Welcome to the board Tommy.

You'll need to get the page out of the cgi-bin. Most engines won't index a page that is in cgi-bin. Many hosts allow directories outside of cgi-bin to have write access - so if it is dynamically generated, you could put the resulting page "out in the open" where se's can find it.

Easiest thing to do to get it indexed, is link to it from your homepage.
