It all depends very much on how the web server is configured. Do you
know if the web server is configured to run CGI programs? Do you have
access to the Apache configuration files? (Actually, is the server
running Apache?)

What value have you given the "action" attribute on the form element?
You say that the CGI program is in the cgi-bin directory - was that
directory there before, or did you create it yourself? Are there any
other cgi-bin directories in the web area on the server?

Sorry for all the questions, but without answers to them any attempt
to help would be purely guesswork.
