path to cgi

Q:
I have downloaded a cgi script and am trying to install it but the exact
"path" to cgi is driving me crazy.. I have the URL but on my server it has
so many different items after typing in:
domain.nerfirms.com/cgi/printenv in my browser it comes up with...
eeeeeeeee??
I have just completed my website.

www.homesteadservice.com and you will see on the front page what program I
am trying to set up.

BNB's Nomodomo (news letter Subscribing)downloaded from Bignosebird.com

In doc from netfirms, it says full path to cgi-bin
"$env{'document_root'}/cgi-bin" is this it?

the servier software is apache/1.3.20 (unix)

thanks..

A:
The path to the root document is given in the environment variable. In
case the cgi directory is named 'cgi-bin' then the answer is yes. However
the cgi directory can be named any name.
