Need an older version of Perl on Debian for WebCT

We are trying to use WebCT on a Debian server. The present production
server is on a Redhat 7.3 server.  WebCT officially "supports" only

The problem is that (we are trying out sarge now) the perl version
(5.8.3) cannot open the Berkeley database files of WebCT 3.8.  I
suspect it needs perl 5.005 which is what is installed on the RH
server at the moment.  Is there a way to have both perl 5.8.3 and
5.005 on the same machine?

My experience of CPAN is limited. I am not quite sure whether using
CPAN to install 5.005 in /usr/local will interfere with other perl
stuff on the machine outside webct?

I would appreciate some guidance about this.
